Special thanks to Imperial Sugar, for sponsoring this years #Choctoberfest and for sending my enough sugar to last a year. 🙂 Sweet things happen when families are together in the kitchen. My family loves Imperial Sugar, and I love that it is non-GMO.
This Chocolate Toffee with Pecans is perfect when you need a bite of something sweet! The perfect solution to your chocolate cravings.
If you like chocolate, you are going to love this week! It is Choctoberfest, the time of year my friends from all over the blogosphere get together and celebrate our love for all things chocolate. From healthy to over the top indulgent, you will find chocolate love with a little something for everyone.
Today, I've got the perfect recipe for you for those times when you need a little bite of something indulgent. I am all about balance, so though I eat well most of the time, there are times when I just have to have chocolatey sweetness.
This Chocolate Toffee with Pecans is full of sweet buttery richness, with the perfect nutty chocolate coating. It is so rich that it only takes a small piece to satisfy even your strongest sugar cravings.
Speaking of sugar, did you know that most sugar you find is GMO? No, thanks!
When I use sugar, I choose Imperial Sugar, because it is non-GMO project verified.
Since 1843, Imperial Sugar has been at the heart of family traditions and celebrations.

Wendy, that looks great! I make toffee every year at Christmas, but use almonds. I'll definitely try pecans this year! P~
It is the Southern girl in me! My grandparents had pecan trees and so we always had an abundance.
I tend to buy pecans in bulk and then not know what to do with them, so this is a perfect recipe for me!
That is a great idea. I grew up always having them around. My Mom kept them in the freezer.
Toffee is one of my favorites and this version sounds perfect.
Thanks so much!
