NATIONAL ALMOND BUTTERCRUNCH DAY
National Almond Buttercrunch Day
is observed annually on June 29th.
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.
Making buttercrunch calls for a good candy thermometer and some cooking experience. Creating the toffee involves caramelizing sugar at high temperatures, which requires precision, timing, the right tools and safety techniques for a successful outcome. Buttercrunch can be served on top of ice cream or enjoyed on its own. Buttercrunch flavored cookies or cakes are other ways to enjoy the sweet treat.
