Brandini Recipe Challenge

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

Comment from the Brandini Recipe Challenge…

Recipe: My favorite Brandini Toffee recipe is to open up the bag and/or tin in a quiet lonely location and stick my hand in, take out a piece of the crunchy loveliness inside and hope that no one else is around as I pop it in my mouth. (I find this works well on an airplane too.) The important thing to remember about this recipe is to put your hand in again and get another piece right after the first one.

Excerpt from the blog “Palmabella’s Passions”:

I can’t say enough about these two clean-cut, poised, enthusiastic young people. They gave us toffee to take home, and we bought some for a hostess gift (that it is VERY unlikely will go past our kitchen and tummies). They have even added a coffee bar to their shop. I will be back…again and again!

Here is a link to my blog. Have a great vacation! See you in September!

Brandini Toffee on Chef vs. City!

Thursday, June 24th, 2010

It was a fun day with Aaron Sanchez and Chris Cosentino from Chef vs. City. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this fairly new show on Food Network, it is Amazing Race meets culinary practices. Two Food Network chefs compete against two locally known professionals; in this case, Tony DiLembo and Thomas Hogan from a well-known Palm Springs hot spot, Tropicale. The first destination on the chef’s maps was Brandini Toffee in Rancho Mirage. Family and friends attended to cheer on the contestants. It was a fun and exciting day for all of us in the Brandini Family.

Chef vs. City meets Palm Springs airs July 23rd on the Food Network. We can’t wait to see who wins the competition!

Hard Work Pays Off

The Martha Stewart Show - Feb. 2008
It’s been an exciting ride so far, last year our products were featured on Martha Stewart, on Oprah’s O List and won the SOFIā„¢ Gold – “Outstanding Chocolate”. We had a great 2008 and now we are hard at work to make 2009 the year of toffee.

Take a Look Around

While you are here be sure to learn a little more about our story, take a look at our range of products, find out about upcoming events and see what we’ve been up to across the web.

Keep In Touch

We are a family business that strives to deliver a personal touch along with our product. We like to think it is working because people seem to have a lot of nice things to say.

The input of our customers means a lot to us, (if it weren’t for you guys we wouldn’t sell any toffee). What you have to say is important, so be sure to let us know if you have any questions or comments.

We hope everyone had a great holiday season and we hope that you’ll put your New Year’s Resolutions aside for just one more piece of toffee.
