NATIONAL ALMOND BUTTERCRUNCH DAY | JUNE 29
National Almond Buttercrunch Day is observed annually on June 29th. Toffee covered in chocolate come together to create buttercrunch. It has a crunchy texture and a caramel flavor. Variations on the recipe include toasted almond sprinkles.
Making buttercrunch calls for a good candy thermometer and some cooking experience. It takes the right tools, precision, timing, and safety to create toffee because it requires cooking sugar at high temperatures. When all these elements come together, success is sweet. Buttercrunch can be served on top of ice cream or enjoyed on its own. Buttercrunch flavored cookies or cakes are other ways to enjoy the sweet treat, too. Bakers love crumbly bits sprinkled along the tops of cupcakes for just a hint of crunch.
Another terrific way to enjoy this delicious toffee is to drink it. Its creamy, sweet nuttiness adds the perfect flavor to coffees, espressos, and cappuccinos. Since several brands of creamers and syrups make this flavor, you can brew a cup in the comfort of your home. Better yet, get out and visit your favorite coffee shop. Order an almond buttercrunch biscotti to dip into a black coffee to celebrate the day instead. The candy is so versatile, mix it into a scone and enjoy it with tea.
