DGZ Chocolates – Toffarazzi

February 11th, 2011 by Rosa

On Wednesday, I reviewed 2 of the 3 confections that I got to try as free samples from DGZ Chocolates. Today, I’ll review the third, the Toffarazzi, which is their best seller. And for good reason!

My half-pound box contained 9 Toffarazzi, described on the website as, “a scrumptious almond butter crisp covered with fine Swiss recipe chocolate and fresh roasted almond bits.”

Each nearly 2-inch square was a solid chunk of hard toffee with bits of almond mixed in. That toffee was then enrobed in chocolate and covered with bits of almond.

The toffee was absolutely gorgeous – it was nicely crisp and cleaved cleanly and then crumbled upon being chewed. Unlike other toffees, this never built up in the molars; it just crumbled and melted on the tongue.

It tasted of the deep complexity of burnt sugar. There was just the perfect hint of an edge of bitter toastiness that I absolutely love in my toffee.

The almond and chocolate were supporting players here. The almonds added just a hint of light nuttiness, while the chocolate brought a touch of sweetness.

But to me, this was all about the toffee. And boy was it good toffee! An OMG for a fine treat that I would heartily recommend.

    These do sound amazing – toffee with a little crunch that doesn’t stick to your teeth. And with chocolate and almonds. Need.

    Ooh. I know what I’m getting my mother for Christmas! She LOVES toffee. And I’m tired of just giving her essentially the same exact thing year after year.

    The testimonial on their website is funny:

    “DGZ Chocolates are always amazing. I love them for myself, but I love to give them as gifts. I have even used them for corporate gifts for my business dealings and my husbands. The quality of the chocolate is outstanding! Ellen P. Lubbock”

    Wait. You have more than one husband? What was I doing on your website?
