Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Roasted Pistachio Toffee

There are only a few ingredients here: bittersweet chocolate, pistachios, sugar and butter, but they all come together in a rapturous experience of crunch, sweetness and nuttiness.  The plethora of pistachios adds visual enjoyment, the price ($3.99 for almost half a pound) makes them an affordable indulgence.

As with all toffees I have ever sampled, the predominant taste is the buttery, crisp toffee.  Perhaps, one day, someone will make this with a thick coating of Valrhona dark chocolate, and loads of pistachios in the toffee itself. Until that fantasy is realized I will be happy to eat Trader Joe’s rendition.
