I didn’t taste one bit of this, but I hear it was lovely.
You see, I started this new diet. And sugar for right now . . . well it’s a nice thought, but that’s all it is.
My daughter and I made this on Sunday afternoon. Sunday afternoons are usually our time for making candy. I wouldn’t recommend making toffee in the dead of summer normally, but all we had was some butter and sugar in the house, with just some little odds and ends of whatever we had in the cupboards, so toffee it was!
Lurking in our pantry was a bag of cacao nibs, and in our fridge, a big bag of almond flour. We spread out the almond flour in the bottom of our baking sheet, and then got the cacao nibs for sprinkling on top. Cacao nibs, by the way, are my new favorite thing to eat with peanut butter. My usual sneak snack is a spoonful of peanut butter dipped in chocolate chips, but I recently switched to the same treat only without sugar. Instead, I take a spoonful of all natural peanut butter (Adam’s is my favorite brand), and dip it in cacao nibs. Oh, and sometimes I eat that with a banana! I tell you, it is the most wonderful snack in the whole wide world!!
But back to the toffee . . .
