Homemade Confections: English Toffee

Click to Enlarge
by Patricia Perratore-Anis

How excited I was to find one of my favorite chocolate treats on my pillow when I returned to my cabin on the Holland America Westerdam the other night!

As I tore off the ribbon and wrapping, I found a treasure of English Toffee nuggets. Of course, I immediately ate one and was in chocolate heaven. It was so fresh and delicious. I savored the essence of each bite.

These delectable treats were sponsored by Homemade Confections in Medford, Oregon, for the International Food, Wine and Travel Writers Association 2011 Conference at Sea attendees. 

Owner Judith Galindo created her delicious recipes for English Toffee and Peanut Brittle over 20 years ago.  She uses only the highest quality chocolate, sweet cream butter, pure Tahitian vanilla and all other premium ingredients. They also hand roast all the nuts. The attention and love they put into their products sets them apart from all others.

Judith’s Homemade Confections won the Oregon Chocolate Festival for Best Chocolate Candy in 2009 and 2010!  Her candy has also been featured at the Tony’s and the Emmy’s.

Visit Homemade Confections website at to learn more about their superb products. If you’re not in the vicinity of Oregon, have no fear; you can purchase them online. I know I will.
