The secret to this sweet masterpiece is the fresh, handmade toffee bits. The toffee starts out with a bit of oil, a splash of coffee, lots of sugar and some corn syrup. If even a little bit of sugar starts to burn on the bottom of the pan, the whole batch will taste burnt - so it is very important to keep stirring throughout the process. When the mixture is hot enough, baking soda is added: turning the toffee from a dark caramel brown to a fluffy golden yellow. (If you're around the bakery during this stage of the process, you will hear Kyle yell out "hot sugar" as he carries the pot of toffee from the burner to the wooden counter!) From here, the boiling hot toffee is quickly poured onto sheet pans where it cools before being shattered into little golden nuggets.

This past year has brought so many beautiful changes into my life, both personal and professional. Last year, I could've never guessed that 2013 would bring me a new major (Ag Communications!) OR a new position (MI's official blogger/social media and marketing intern!!!!!). I am so grateful for all the opportunities that have been set before me and for all the people that encouraged me to seize them. My life has never been so filled with love and laughter and for that I feel extremely blessed. Although I cannot say what 2014 has in store for me, I CAN with certainty that the best is yet to come.
