FLORIDA (TO MY LIVING ROOM): THE BEST WHITE CHOCOLATE SITCH
By Nora Zelevansky / August 11th, 2010
Last night I had one of those brilliant, inspired moments: There I was, sitting on my couch, just innocently watching Drop Dead Diva (yeah, I admit it), when my sister asked me if I had anything sweet in the house.
Suddenly I remembered something key to solving our dessert crisis: An uneaten box of Toffee To Go's White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Toffee was sitting in my kitchen cabinet. (I know it's not quite cursing over a Jet Blue plane's loudspeaker, grabbing two beers and exiting down an inflated emergency slide, but it's something, you know?)
We grabbed it and tore it apart like maniacs. And, holy crappola, if that wasn't the most delicious white chocolate dessert I've ever tasted. See, I'm not always a HUGE white chocolate person. First of all, I think it's racist. I'm not sure how or why. But I'm pretty positive it's fucked up in some way. Two, it's really not chocolate, right? They should call it something else. Like yogurt. But that's just one person's opinion.
BUT ANYWAY … this was delicious: The outer layer was soft, the nuts were crunchy and the toffee was buttery and almost chewy.
Notice I keep saying "was." We ate it all. And by "we" I mean "I."
So, R.I.P. White Chocolate Toffee. May we meet again someday. Like, I dunno, tomorrow on the couch again.
