The Back Story

Cache Toffee Collection began in my Park City, Utah kitchen 7,000 feet above sea level. I started with the treasured toffee making techniques my mother taught me, adjusted for altitude, and one thing just led to another.

While working out the perfect balance of ingredients, temperature, and storage techniques, I also began to experiment with flavor and texture combinations. I thought, why not add some unique spices, or marinate fruits in brandy and introduce them to the layer of chocolate on the traditional toffee? How about a bit of spicy heat? You can see where I was going here…

It wasn’t long before my love of cooking, gardening, and celebrating each season led me down some delectable paths. I was simply having fun creating edible gifts for friends and family. But once I started, I couldn’t stop, because they kept asking for more! When I found out that some of them had gone so far as to pretend their supply of toffee was “Oops! All gone…” just so they could keep their treasured Cache to themselves, I decided to go a little bigger. I moved into a commercial kitchen and made it official.

The Cache Toffee Collection is still local and handcrafted and now it’s available nationally and online with eleven varieties and more scrumptious flavors on the way. Now there’s a toffee for every sweet (and savory) tooth, every season, and every occasion. So go ahead—treat yourself!
