Ended- Enstrom's Milk Chocolate Almond Toffee Review and Giveaway


I recently was able to try Enstrom's Milk Chocolate Almond Toffee and I am in love! This is the best toffee that I have ever had. The description on the box had me salivating before I even tried it:

"The perfect blend of sweet cream butter, pure cane sugar and California almonds, drenched in creamy milk chocolate and sprinkled with crushed almonds."

This toffee has a light, buttery, delicious taste. It is a little rich, but not too much so. It comes as a bark. Mine was partially broken up when I got it (probably from my mail guys!) I like to brake it up into small pieces to eat it anyhow. This toffee also lasts a long time because you only need to eat a little bit in order to feel satisfied.This would make a great gift.

You can also use this toffee in recipes! Enstrom's has some recipes listed on their website like this Enstrom's Almond Toffee and Coffee Frosting:
Submitted by Deedie Rose and Leonard Wennmohs
2 sticks salted butter
3 cups powdered sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla (or to taste)
1 tablespoon instant espresso coffee mixed with 2 teaspoons hot water (stir until dissolved in separate cup) then add to butter/sugar/vanilla mixture
Enstrom's Milk Chocolate Almond Toffee (chop toffee using as much as you like)
Add chopped toffee to frosting mix and/or sprinkle on top of frosted cake

That sounds delicious. Me personally, I am eating all of mine as is. It is too good to mix with other ingredients. Here are a few pictures I took of my latest piece of toffee before I devoured it:

The powdery stuff on top is crushed almonds. Yummy. 

About Enstrom's:
Three generations ago, Chet Enstrom perfected the art of blending the finest natural ingredients to create batches of almond toffee as gifts for family and friends. By 1960, his almond toffee had begun to develop a reputation and, at the urging of family and friends, Chet and his wife, Vernie, founded Enstrom Candies in Grand Junction, Colorado.

Over the years. the business has grown and been passed down from generation to generation. The family still follows the same original recipe for the almond toffee that Chet perfected almost 60 years ago. The family has also created a delectable selection of fine chocolates, which like the toffee, is blended with only the freshest natural ingredients to create luxurious and unique creations that are shipped around the world.

Today, Chet’s granddaughter, Jamee and her husband, Doug Simons, oversee the operation out of Grand Junction and Chet’s grandson Rick, and his wife Linda, manage the Denver stores. This third generation continues to take pride in creating truly exceptional confections and still operates with the philosophy begun by Chet over 60 years ago; that they’re just making a little Almond Toffee for a few of their friends.

I'm a Grand Junction native (as is my Mom) and we grew up eating and visiting Enstrom's! I would love to try the caramels- yum! Gosh I sure hope I win a box of toffee! It is the only toffee I eat and I don't get to treat myself to it often. I also joined Entrom's FB page (LisaAnn Howland Young). Email me at myfamof11@yahoo.com :)
