National Almond Buttercrunch Day | Buttercrunch Bars
The below post first appeared on this blog for National Buttercrunch Day. I decided to make it with almonds without realizing that there is a National Almond Buttercrunch Day. See what I mean about being more efficient and organized? So, this is a re-purposed post, what of it? 😉
Toffee. Buttercrunch. They are basically the same. There are some small differences, which is best explained by TheNibble.com, but overall, I’m creating what the majority of people just call “toffee”.
I expressed my love for toffee before when I made these Apple Toffee Dips. I wondered how I could love something that includes chocolate with such intensity. My thoughts are always quickly dissipated when I just chow down for nothing else comes to mind except how delicious this combo always is.
For National Buttercrunch Day, I thought it would be best to just make these bars. One of the easiest desserts one can make, I was plenty pleased with these bars and know you will be too.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 1 cup unsalted butter
- 1/8 tsp baking soda
- Pinch of salt
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 cup almond slivers, toasted
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- Combine sugars, butter, vanilla, and salt in medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir to combine and bring to a boil.
- Stir constantly until candy thermometer reads 300*. Remove from heat and stir in baking soda and maple syrup.
- Pour onto baking sheet and allow to cool.
- In a small saucepan, melt chocolate chips. Pour and spread over cooled buttercrunch bars.
- Place in refrigerator to set.
