      Let’s look at the main ingredients:

      • Chocolate Chips
      • Butter
      • Sweetener

      Chocolate is a natural, nutritious food that comes from the Cacao Tree. It is a great source of iron and antioxidants, and it has many other health benefits.

      But what about butter? What about the added milk in chocolate chips? Is dairy healthy? 

      Here’s what we know. Dairy is full of vitamins, minerals, protein, and natural fat energy. But if everyone consumed dairy all of the time, dairy farming would become abusive and unsustainable…

      Let’s be mindful of our dairy intake. Buy dairy that comes from pasture raised cows and limit consumption.

      Sugar is what makes food unhealthy. 

      Add 228g of sugar (19g/serving) to this Chocolate Toffee and you’re looking at heartburn with an energy crash. (And you’ll be scouring the pantry for your next sugar snack within the hour.) 

      Substitute the sugar for a quality sugar alcohol, and this dessert becomes nourishment. The ingredients provide vitamins, minerals, and long-lasting energy. 

      Enjoy this Chocolate Toffee knowing it supports your well being. Learn more about eating less sugar here.

      Chocolate Toffee Tips

      Add nuts 

      Slivered almonds and pecan pieces are the common nuts in toffee. To include them in your recipe, cover the bottom of your baking dish with nuts, and proceed through the recipe like normal. The nuts will be contained within the sweet butter base.

      Use quality butter

      Chocolate toffee made from quality butter is rich, flavorful, and buttery smooth. Good butter matters (not to mention it’s more sustainable and humane). Check your grocery store for “free range” butter. 

      Use a 9×13 baking dish

      The size of your baking dish determines the thickness (and therefore softness) of your chocolate toffee. We like the 9inx13in baking dish, but anything close to 117 square inches will work. 

      “I can’t eat toffee. It’s too hard for my teeth.”

      Don’t worry about hard toffee with this recipe. This toffee recipe yields a thin, soft toffee that is gentle on the teeth. Even straight from the fridge, this chocolate toffee is buttery smooth.

      Keep leftover toffee in the fridge

      Even at fridge temperature, this chocolate toffee stays soft and light. In fact, we recommend serving it cold. Break your toffee into bite-sized pieces, and store them in our favorite glass tupperware.
