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
Visit Homemade Confections
http://www.homemadeconfections.org/index.html 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.
