NATIONAL BUTTERCRUNCH DAY
National Buttercrunch Day is observed annually on January 20th. #NationalButtercrunchDay
This holiday celebrates a toffee candy. Buttercrunch is a combination of toffee, covered with chocolate. It has a crunchy texture and a caramel flavor. Variations on the recipe include toasted almond sprinkles.
Many variations of toffee can be made based on mixes, processes, and temperatures which will result in different textures and hardness. A popular variant in the US is English toffee, which is a very buttery toffee often made with almonds. It is available in both chewy and hard versions. However, one can still find this product in the UK under the name “buttercrunch.”
Buttercrunch can be served on top of ice cream, or on its own. Buttercrunch flavored cookies or cakes are other ways to enjoy the sweet treat.
