This Toffee Caramel bar was my favorite World Market chocolate bar so far. It had a nice snap to it, and didn't seem overly sweet.
As noted yesterday, after a light dinner last night, I was still hungry. And, so I opened up a package of Marich Chocolate Toffee Almonds. Today (March 26) was "make up your own holiday day" (according to information found on holidayinsights.com). Therefore, I declared today Day #2 of Chocolate and Toffee Theme Week -- both justifying my overindulgence last night, and paving the way for more chocolate and toffee combinations this week. Toffee in the U.S. generally refers to butter and sugar mixture caramelized together, heated, cooled, and rendered into a crunchy end product. It is sometimes broken into bits and embedded in chocolate - as is the case with today's bar. In any case, it is very nice when mixed with chocolate.
