sweet words

Sometimes things happen and there are no words to offer. Nothing but hugs and telling a friend you love her. And making her something sweet to ease the pain if only for as long as it takes to get the toffee out of her teeth.

I made Deb's coffee toffee a few weeks ago and decided now was as good a time as any to pull out the candy thermometer again. It's easy, delicious, and infinitely adaptable. For this batch I sprinkled sliced almonds on top and wrapped stacked toffee squares with colorful tissue paper and a silver bow.

If you can't find the words, whether overcome with joy or grief, I think this homemade candy will at least produce a smile.

You can find Deb's recipe here on her mouth-watering blog, SmittenKitchen.
