Toffee Break

So Valentine's Day is over, and there's many, many people you know who didn't receive candy. What a shame.  But you can remedy that, and in the nicest way.

Littlejohn's English Toffee is the answer.  This "toffee house" is somewhat of an LA legend, tucked away inside the famous Farmer's Market (where you can watch them actually make the sweet stuff).  The candy is crunching, but not jaw-shattering.  They're liberal with the chopped nuts.  And the toffee is so buttery and perfect, it doesn't even stick to your teeth, just melting away into a burnt sugar memory on the tongue.  A box full is ideal for an after dinner party nibble, or with tea and a good book on a rainy afternoon.

Order it through www.littlejohnscandies.com. Sugar hounds everywhere will thank you.
