See's Victoria Toffee Candy

My friends at See's chocolate have posed a chocolate challenge upon me! They have graciously sent me this wonderful box of See's Victoria Toffee and would like me to come up with a dessert in which to use it. If it were up to me, I'd gladly eat it as is, since english toffee is one of my most favorite candies! But I need to get some creative juices flowing...

Since 1921, See's has made this famous old-fashioned toffee from a secret recipe that combines real butter, sugar, and plump whole almonds on the inside, and See's creamy milk chocolate and chopped almonds on the outside.

Any ideas on how to use it? Cookies? Brownies? Cupcakes, perhaps? Oh the various sweet possibilites!! Here's a bit about See's Chocolate Candies... a definite treat you'll want to pick up if ever in San Francisco!

  1. I love See's candies! I love their toffee suckers. It always reminds me of visiting my aunt in California, or when she would come to visit us. She always has those toffee suckers on hand!

  2. Oooh! I would crush them up and use it as a garnish on brownies.

    Or in a chocolate mousse (with crunch, obviously).

    Or you could melt them together and use them as a frosting (that will harden and be yummy) for butterscotch bars

    Are they crunchy in the middle, or soft?

    I would maybe create a new icecream flavour and include them

    Can't wait to see what you decide on!

  3. You added a pic!!! You are adorable!!!!!!

    I LOVE toffee... I think it's best just eaten as is!

    But I'd definitely try whatever you put it in!

  5. Ice cream? Crunched up into the date cake in a sticky toffee pudding?

  6. I can't wait to hear (and see) what you come up with! I love See's but we only find them here in MN during Christmas when they set kiosks at the mall.

  7. I love See's candies. Luckily, we have a few stores in my state. Though, that is rather unfortunate for my waistline. And their English toffee is "eat-until-you-are-green" good. How about a cupcake with a toffee buttercream filling (use one of the special tips for injecting filling into the cupcake - so fun!) and then topped with a swirl chocolate buttercream, sprinkled with the toffee?

  8. I was just reminiscing about one of my favorite desserts from New Zealand (DH and I went a year ago). It's an ice cream called hokey pokey. Basically, it's vanilla ice cream with toffee bits and caramel swirled in. See's does make some good toffee, so maybe you can try that?

  9. I love See's candies, too! How about crushed and used as a great ingredient for a cookie? (toffee, nuts, chocolate....it's all good!) Maybe include a little sea salt in the batter to balance the flavors.
    Or crushed and mixed with graham crackers as a crust for some sort of cheesecake?
