I grew up in Western Colorado. Located half way between Denver and Salt Lake is a bustling little city called Grand Junction where you’ll find the Colorado National Monument, amazing Palisade Peaches, and even wine country. One of the best local treats is Enstrom’s Toffee. My coworkers are getting their annual Enstrom’s toffee bar with a card this year but in case you need a stocking stuffer, hostess or coworker gift, or just need something delicious to nibble on yourself, I thought you should know about this little gem. It’s even certified Kosher for Hanukkah making it the perfect treat for any holiday you’re celebrating.
This World Famous Almond Toffee is still made by hand and once you tasted it, you’ll always want more. It started in a candymaker’s kitchen, and is still made from the traditional recipe handed down from generation to generation, this toffee is my go-to gift. And after they break the toffee to fit into boxes the bits and crumbles left behind are gathered up and sold by the bag. Watch this recent facebook live video to see how the toffee is made!
The Candy was also part of an ice cream shop in town and I’ll be honest, their peppermint ice cream is my absolute favorite. They even make amazing Peppermint Cookie Bark.
With the crumbles I’m getting this year you can be sure I’ll be adding them to cookies I’m baking. In fact, I am going to make these oatmeal almond toffee cookies: Click HERE for the whole recipe from Enstrom’s.
If you live in Colorado you can probably find a store near you and they ship worldwide but if you need just a little fix, Cost Plus World Market or even Walgreens may have little bars in store. But if you need a pound or more of the toffee and some Mint Meltaways, and Cookie bark and turtles, order online, you won’t be sorry!
