A story about a little "Crunch".

Tradition had always been that on Black Friday, I'd spend the whole day making my Christmas Candies. I made Turtles, my mom's version of a thin mint, chocolate covered raisins (my husband's favorite), almond bark, toffee, truffles, peanut butter cups, etc. etc. etc. Every year the box evolved a little and I was always on the lookout for new ideas. A few years earlier I'd had a product that was delightful but no longer available. So...

I started researching and soon came up with a "test" recipe I could try. Thankfully with a little tweaking Truly Custom Crunch was born and from that point on, it was a staple in my holiday candy packages.

Then the recipe requests started. "But what will I give you for Christmas?", was always my reply. The next question kind of surprised me. They started asking me to sell it to them since I wouldn't share my recipe, because they wanted to give it to their friends and family as well.

So what is it you ask? It's my special toffee caramel recipe cooked "just so" and then poured over pecans, almonds, and popcorn, after which it is coated with a rich dark chocolate drizzle. It's a wonderful blend of salty sweet with a touch of chocolate. The nuts add an extra burst of texture and flavor, the popcorn is perfectly crisp, and it truly does melt in your mouth!

Curious what people have to say about Truly Custom Crunch? You can read customer reviews HERE.

And although we can't get anymore orders out before Christmas, it's not too late to order for your New Year's Eve parties!
