This bread is also called "Black Russian" and is delicious! Try it with a ripe piece of Brie, as a sandwich, even fabulous French toast! It's origins came out of New York. Smells heavenly baking in the oven!

Old fashioned chocolate dipped Coffee Pecan Toffee! This makes a great gift! From Better Homes and Gardens.
A popular variant of toffee 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; there is some debate as to which is the traditional English style and which is an Americanized version. A popular presentation of English toffee is covered in chocolate and almond pieces.
