Making Dallas Even Better


For 10 years, mother and daughter Amy Wiede and Shannon MacDonald whipped up batches of chocolate toffee to give to family and friends. Based on the positive feedback—even their dentist approved of the crunchy candy—the duo launched Fowler’s Toffee. Each small batch is made with pure butter, sugar, roasted nuts, and either white or milk chocolate swirled in steel pots. Currently, they offer two varieties of toffee and three barks, each sold in quarter-pound to 2-pound boxes. I’m partial to the milk chocolate almond toffee, unless it’s raining. Then I reach for the white chocolate cashew. Or is it the other way around? $5.95 to $39.95 per box.
