Neighbors, friends, and families exchange numerous sweets over the holidays, and it's not uncommon to end up with multiples of the same dessert — especially toffee. Because toffee contains butter, which eventually spoils, and nuts, which go rancid after a few months, you will want to eat your toffee up by Valentine's Day. Here are five things you can do with toffee, so you don't grow bored of eating it!
- Crumble the toffee pieces on top of buttercream frosted cakes or cupcakes.
- Liven up a classic brownie recipe by mixing in toffee bits instead of chocolate chips in the batter
- Make oatmeal, coconut, and toffee cookies.
- Top your coffee or hot chocolate with whipped cream and sprinkle with toffee.
- Freeze the toffee for up to four months in an air-tight zip-lock bag. The toffee might soften up over time, but the nuts and butter will maintain their freshness if kept frozen.
