When was the last time you really treated yourself to something sweet? Can you remember when you last threw caution to the wind and stopped caring about calories and sugar content for just a few blissful minutes as you dig into a crunchy, sweet and decadent buttercrunch treat?
Most people probably can’t.
As more and more people are becoming conscious about their diet and health, the classic buttercrunch bar has been somewhat forgotten due to its, admittedly high, sugar content and addictive nature. The brittle crunch mixed with the sweet and sticky taste of toffee is a heavenly combination, but we all know that too much buttercrunch can be a bad thing.
Luckily, someone cleverly decided that there should be a National Buttercrunch Day–a day where you can throw your diet out of the window and let yourself go (to some extent!) by treating yourself to an indulgent buttercrunch bar. Of course, if you’re feeling extra fancy then you can break it up and mix with your favorite ice cream for a mouth-watering dessert, or even consider sprinkling it over a cheesecake to add a little crunch. There are plenty of ways to eat buttercrunch and it doesn’t have to go straight into your mouth!
Everyone knows that taste and texture are the two most important factors when it comes to picking a sweet treat. After all, you’re not allowed to have too many treats in a day, so you need to make sure it’s something that delights all of your senses. That’s why so many people have fallen in love with buttercrunch. It’s a sensory delight thanks to the initial crunch you get, followed by the sweet and creamy toffee flavor that melts in your mouth and tingles your tastebuds.
National Buttercrunch Day is all about celebrating buttercrunch. Everything from its flavor to the texture and even its versatility are appreciated today.
You could make your own batch of buttercrunch to share with your friends and family members (it’s a really simple recipe!) or add it to other desserts to create something entirely different and new. You’ll learn all about how to make the perfect buttercrunch and also get plenty of ideas on how to use it. Of course, you could just eat it all up as it is, but we certainly recommend trying it with different types of desserts on National Buttercrunch Day to spice it up a little!
