Backstory- A few months back, someone brought a bag to the office of the best looking/best-tasting toffee I have ever tried. I didn’t think I even liked toffee, but wow this stuff was good. Originally, I said no to trying a piece, but this man would not give up and really encouraged me to try some. When I finally caved, it was magical. Okay maybe I won’t go all Disney princess on you all, but I took a bite and just stared at him. Fireworks. At this point I already had my blog going and was always running with ideas on who I wanted to interview or meet for The Olive Brunette. I immediately started asking this toffee man who the creator of this genius treat was and how I can contact her. Keep in mind that when I try something I am never one to be jumping up and down, raving about what I just put in my mouth. This was different. Someone was taking over my body.
Anyways, I finally got in contact with the genius behind this sweet treat and was so so happy!
Peggy owns a company called Peggy’s Better Butter Toffee and she HUSTLES to get her product out there. This woman is up at the crack of dawn making toffee for various occasions WITH A SMILE. I had the pleasure of meeting with Peggy and her assistants, Havilah and Valentina, to get a behind the scenes look into how the toffee is created.
Looks can be deceiving…let me tell ya! This process might look and sound simple, but there is a lot that goes into it. I know I can’t do it. I will not be giving the recipe away (because I don’t even know what it is), but I will tell you that it’s amazing and I wouldn’t bother trying to copy. Just buy it and appreciate the beautiful bag of the most amazing toffee. Peggy does the work for you and just wants you to enjoy! 🙂
I learned that this recipe has been passed down from generation to generation and got its start in England from Peggy’s great grandmother. She got the recipe from her mom at the age of 15 and has not looked back. That’s love and dedication right there.
Busy, busy! Make sure to check her out on Facebook and feel free to reach out if you ever want an order for your next occasion. Peggy will customize the toffee however you like. Dark chocolate, white chocolate, nuts/no nuts, specific color scheme…
I did not think I could have such a great time with a group of ladies (so early in the morning), but we were all laughing and telling stories. Peggy and her team made me feel so welcome/loved and SPOILEDDDD me with some of that amazing toffee! Thank You. I may or may not have eaten an entire bag that same morning…
As I continue this journey with The Olive Brunette, I’m learning that each experience is teaching me a new lesson. If Peggy can get up before the sun rises to make toffee, manage/run a cleaning business and work for a title company, then I can really do anything and everything I set my mind to. Life’s a journey, patience is a virtue, and our time is precious. With that being said, I encourage you all to take in every second of every day as if it’s your last and remember that you are exactly where you need to be.
Huge shout out to Peggy for giving me a peek into her world of toffee. Definitely give her toffee a try and I promise you will not be disappointed. Check her out here on Facebook to place your order today.
