I was inspired to create these gluten free Toffee Cheesecake Bites by some amazing handcrafted toffee samples by B.Toffee of Newport Beach, Ca.
Who doesn’t love small scrumptious bites while enjoying a glass of wine? Yesterday I was nibbling on a decadent B.Toffee square with milk chocolate and started thinking about how wonderful it would be with cheesecake. And wine.
I found myself in the kitchen pulling out various ingredients and I ended up with a fresh fig, stuffed with cheesecake filling and topped with B.Toffee bits. It was pure heaven! The recipe was delicious and so simple to make!
Toffee Cheesecake Stuffed Figs
- 6 Fresh Figs, halved
- 2 oz Cream Cheese
- 1 TBSP Brown Sugar
- Few Drops of Pure Vanilla Extract
- Sprinkle of Cinnamon, to taste
- B.Toffee Bits
Clean and halve your figs, then set aside. In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, brown sugar, vanilla and cinnamon, until well blended. Add a heaping teaspoon to the top of each fig, then sprinkle the B.Toffee Bits on top. Chill for about 10-15 minutes before serving. Enjoy with a nice glass of Mirassou Pinot Noir.
About Mirassou Pinot Noir: Fruit forward and approachable in style, our 2010 Mirassou Pinot Noir has flavors of cherry, strawberry and red currant, which are supported by light vanilla and oak notes. This wine is well balanced with a round, full mouthfeel.
We really enjoy creating small bites and sweet treats to pair with wine for a “Date Night In“. This would be a prefect treat for our menu, as well as a Girl’s Night In, Cocktail Party, Dinner Party, Wine Pairing or even a Book Club! If I saw something like this on a Wine Bar menu, I would order it!
Now I’ve used toffee bits in several recipes over the years, commonly found in your grocery store. B.Toffee is nothing like it. Would I use my personal stash to make cookies for my kiddos? No I would not. B.Toffee is a Artisan Toffee. It is an award winning toffee, made with the finest ingredients. The taste is full, rich and decadent. I would either eat it alone, which is fabulous, or only in a very special recipe. (Like this one, of course!)
B.Toffee makes a wonderful gift for someone special. Whether a relative, friend or teacher, a beautifully packaged gift of premium toffee is sure to put a smile on their face! I know I was excited when I received mine! I highly recommend trying this amazing toffee!
