Meet the Maker

Steve Kippels St. Paul, MN USA

Making exceptional toffee has been a lifelong passion for Steve.  Starting at the age of 5 and learning his mother's recipe at her side, his first tasks included measuring, stirring and watching for the precise timing of the cooking process.  He has been refining his toffee crafting skills for over 50 years.

After a time spent developing related skills (pouring molten iron in a foundry, corporate operations management and sophisticated process design), he has come full circle to focus these skills to the task of crafting fine toffee for connoisseurs everywhere.

Passionate about sourcing quality ingredients, controlling the cooking process and remaining true to the techniques he learned early on, Steve can still be found over the stove on most days crafting a truly small batch artisanal product not possible in a factory setting.  You will see his initials on every finished bag as a testament to this handmade process.
