Tony Toffee Upscale toffee gorgeously packaged is the specialty of the Silverlake-based Valerie Confections (888-706-1408 or www.valerieconfections.com). Co-owner Stan Weightman Jr. recommends the company’s two-piece box ($7 each) as wedding favors, and the six-piece box ($20 each) as welcome gifts. “They’re all handmade in small batches using the best ingredients: Plugra butter, organic nuts, and Valrhona chocolate,” he says. “Instead of being a bark, as most toffees are, we enrobe each piece by hand, sealing the toffee, and thus preserving its freshness.” The flavors—among them Almond Fleur de Sel Toffee and Hazelnut Toffee—will keep foodies intrigued. And the dizzying packaging options—your choice of box size and color, ribbon color, personalization, and even a fortune insert inside each box—will delight detailoriented brides. The toffee doesn’t need to be refrigerated, but it does need to be stored in a cool environment, so this is a good choice for indoor events, or to leave at the hotel.
