Love is in the air and with Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I have a wonderful gift for that special person in your life. About three years ago, I was dropping my daughter off at daycare and passed by a local shop by the name of Toffee To Go. After seeing their sign endless times, my curiosity got the best of me and I decided to stop by for a visit. That was one of the best spontaneous decisions I have ever made, as that was the day I discovered what has become my favorite indulgence, Toffee To Go.
Decadent, crunchy, sweet, buttery, rich, mouth watering and über delicious are just a few ways to describe this locally made treat that has captivated my taste buds as well as my heart. Each bite takes me on a blissful journey to another place and makes me feel truly at peace.
Available in Milk Chocolate Toffee with Almonds, Dark Chocolate Toffee with Pecans and White Chocolate Toffee with Macadamia Nuts, their toffee is made by hand in small batches. Each batch is made with only the finest ingredients including California almonds, Georgia pecans, farm-fresh butter, premium chocolate, and the most important, love. You can taste the passion behind their toffee and that is just one of the many the reasons for their thriving business.
Behind every great product is a passionate person, or in this case, a passionate couple. Toffee To Go is the labor of love by husband and wife, Jim and Lisa Schalk. After Lisa tasted the traditional Schalk family toffee, she found it so incredible she told her husband that they needed to learn how to make it immediately. Her and Jim spent hours perfecting the family recipe and after a few alterations to the original recipe, their amazing toffee was born. What started out as delicious treats for family and friends is now a favorite even amongst celebrities, including Oprah Winfrey. This past December, Toffee To Go was featured as one of Oprah’s 2013 Favorite Things. I always knew Oprah had great taste.
