Trisha’s Almond Toffee

I’m sure the first thing that popped in your mind when you heard toffee was – ‘AH I don’t want that stuff stuck in my teeth while I’m at a party’. Well, guess what – Trisha’s Almond Toffee honestly DOESN’T get stuck in your teeth! I don’t know how she does it but Brooke’s (owner) Aunt Trish perfected this recipe for the absolute perfect toffee. With flavors like milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate, milk chocolate SEA SALT and dark chocolate SEA SALT you can’t go wrong bringing a pound or two of delicious toffee as your contribution – trust me, no-one will be mad.

You will be the life of the party if you show up with handcrafted ice cream sandwiches – if you can even make it to the party without eating all of them yourself. Cream Cruiser was started in the Summer of 2015, by a high school friend actually, whose intention of having a ‘…fun way to spend the weekends – being outside, riding bikes around the city and eating yummy ice cream that was sandwiched between two chewy & delicious cookies.’ With demand for these sammies rising, owner Katherine decided to start stocking them in local stores and shipping them! So grab a cooler and head to one of the local stores that’s carrying sammies, you’ll be set for that holiday party in no time.

Now if you live in or around Baltimore OR if you have a friend or family member who lives in or around Baltimore and you have never had one of these amazing fudge topped cookies I feel deeply sorry for you. These cookies, while SUPER rich, are amazing and I love them. Showing up with these babies at a Holiday party might get you a snickering ‘oh HEY HON’ but trust me every last one of these cookies will be gone by the end of the party.

These babies are NOT hard to find so I’m just going to link the Berger Cookie Finder HERE.

Hopefully you’re breathing a bit easier now knowing that there are so many amazingly delicious options out there that involve zero raw eggs, flour or a hot oven from your end. Don’t get me wrong – I LOVE baking – but I get it, sometimes time just slips away from me and I’m stuck trying to figure out when I’ll have 20 minutes to bake some raw cookie dough. With all these options, I’m glad to know that even if I lose track of time I’ll still be the hero with the best dessert at the party.
