Summit toffee is the culmination of Cache Toffee founder Lori Darr’s fascination with the dazzling display of fall she enjoys while hiking in the wooded mountains near her home.
Those beautiful surroundings inspired Summit, a toffee combination featuring dry roasted and lightly salted pistachios, pumpkin seeds, and sunflower seeds. She added dried cranberries, apricots, and golden raisins to represent the colors of fall and bring chewy sweetness to Summit. Apple brandy further accentuates the fruit flavors. Finally, a dash of green tea leaves brings an inviting, earthy taste to the sweet, buttery toffee that’s complemented by a decadent base of dark chocolate.
This fall, we invite you to explore Summit, a sweet and crunchy combination of taste and nutritional benefits thanks to a cornucopia of dried fruits, seeds, and nuts in each delicious bite. Let’s explore some of the individual ingredients found in Summit.
The best dark chocolate has three simple ingredients: 50-90% cocoa, cocoa butter, and sugar. Summit features Solstice 70% Wasatch Blend. The artisan bean-to-bar chocolate is named after Utah’s famed mountain range—the Wasatch Mountains. The bar blends three different cacao origins for a rich and satisfying brownie-like flavor. What’s even better is that dark chocolate provides a multitude of health benefits.
Dried cranberries brighten anyone’s day. A staple of fall baking, these tiny tart berries add both color and a sweet/tart tang to our toffee. Plus, they are loaded with antioxidants for a healthy boost to your diet.
Pumpkin and Sunflower Seeds
Although neither of these seeds are nuts, both provide a mildly nutty and chewy component to Summit. Aside from the savory, slightly salty goodness of these two seeds so prevalent in the fall, they are also great for you. Heart-healthy pumpkin seeds are a good source of magnesium, zinc, and iron, while sunflower seeds are rich in vitamin E and selenium and can promote skin health and reduce inflammation.
Dried apricots are a popular ingredient in many baked goods, and for a good reason. These chewy fruits add a natural sweetness to Summit, along with a beautiful yellow-orange autumn color. Dried apricots are rich in fiber, potassium, and antioxidants, bringing a fruity boost to your health.
Raisins provide a burst of chewy sweetness to Summit that will put a smile on anyone’s face. Having long been a staple in trail mix, raisins are packed with energy and are the perfect addition to this autumnal toffee bite, too. Fortunately, these dehydrated grapes are not only delicious, but they also are a rich source of vitamins and minerals such as potassium, calcium, and iron.
Pistachios are our favorite luxurious ingredient in Summit, as they bring a subtle hint of green and a crunchy, nutty flavor. These tree nuts are loaded with antioxidants and are a great source of healthy fats, fiber, and protein. They are high in several nutrients that have health benefits, like cholesterol management, better digestion, and improved eye health.
This fall, delight in the irresistible mix of flavors and autumn memories with Summit. Studded with dried cranberries, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, apricots, golden raisins, and pistachios, Summit will surely keep you coming back for more.
