This stuff melts in your mouth, and that’s wonderful but also sad- because who wants a wonderful thing to melt away?
The reality is that some ingredients are just meant to be combined- and it’s undeniable that toffee covered with a slathering layer of milk chocolate and then sprinkled with toasted chopped almonds is a match made in sinful dessert heaven.
Toffee is easier to make than you might think, even though it involves a candy thermometer (if you don’t have one, well, get one- even a $20 model will do the trick). When people eat it they think you’re some kind of baking superstar, even though it’s not that complex… but don’t tell them that. Just wipe your brow and thank them for their undying admiration.
