National Buttercrunch Day is Friday, January 20, 2017

Also known at Hilliards Chocolates as Almond Toffee Crunch, buttercrunch is one of the most delicious gourmet confections on the market. If you’ve never tasted it before, we urge you to give it a try in celebration of National Buttercrunch Day this Friday.

What is Almond Toffee Crunch? It is a caramel toffee candy covered in rich dark chocolate and topped with fresh crushed almonds.  

Hilliards’ variety is extra special, as it is cooked in our copper kettles and coated in dark chocolate by hand. Almond Toffee Crunch is quite the work of candy art and is also one of our most popular sellers.

Our Almond Toffee Crunch takes an expert chocolatier to cook just right, with the caramelization of sugars and the melting of chocolate having to occur at just the right temperatures for that sweet, decadent taste we know and love.

Looking for a fun way to incorporate buttercrunch into your evening? It is delicious to enjoy on its own for dessert, but we also love crumbling it on top of ice cream for an extra pop of flavor.

Available in 7.5 oz. and 15 oz. boxes, our Almond Toffee Crunch is some of the best you will ever have! And for those who prefer milk chocolate to dark chocolate, Hilliards also offers Milk Almond Toffee Buttercrunch. Available for purchase on its own, and included in our chocolate assortments, this is another delectable form of handmade buttercrunch to enjoy.

Happy National Buttercrunch Day from Hilliards Chocolates! We hope to see you in stores this week to pick up your favorite buttercrunch candy.
