Welcome to Day #1 of Chocolate, Caramel and Golden Sugars Theme Week, featuring chocolate items with caramel, toffee, and other heated or golden-hued/flavored sugars.
Today's chocolate covered Toffee (pieces) were from Whimsy Chocolates (Battle Ground, WA).
These attractive, classic confections were each decorated with a diagonal brush stroke of shiny gold.
Aroma and flavor notes were fairly straight-forward and included: sweet dark chocolate and golden caramel/toffee.
The texture and taste were toffee forward. A relatively thin layer of smooth dark chocolate covered a square of crunchy toffee with fine-grained golden sugars (and butter).
The buttery crunch of this golden toffee center was well executed. Yes, it was firm and sweet. But not so firm that you feared a broken tooth, nor so sweet that it stuck excessively in teeth. It will please those who like sweets.
Ingredients: Chocolate (unsweetened chocolate, sugar, cocoa butter, soy lecithin added as an emulsifier, natural vanilla flavor); butter (milk, natural flavor); sugar; corn syrup (light corn syrup, water, high fructose corn syrup, salt, vanilla); titanium dioxide; iron oxide; carmine and mica.
