Sweet-A-Licious Gourmet Toffee & Nuts: Sheri Hillis

Cameron Park, 530-363-2766,  |  @sweetalicioustoffee

Services or products you offer: Almond toffee and nuts that many say are irresistible and habit-forming. You can purchase our products locally at Under the Arbor, Churchill's Hardware, or on our website. We also participate in Cameron Park’s Old Fashioned Christmas Craft Faire.

What you enjoy most about your profession: Sharing my passion for sweets with other people; being head of quality control and the company’s primary taste-tester is a nice perk, too!

Fun fact about your company: Our espresso toffee recently won a bronze medal in the “Top Artisan Toffee Contest,” which was sponsored by Taste TV and the International Chocolate Salon. The almond toffee, however, is still our best seller; I’ve been making it for family and friends for over 30 years.

First job: Famous Ramos Hot Dogs at Brea Mall.

Favorite food: Chocolate and dark beer (often together)!

Last big purchase: A $1,700 tempering machine to improve my products and prevent me from having to stir chocolate for 20-30 minutes by hand.

When not working, you can be found: Hanging out with family and friends or my beloved golden retriever. I also love to travel, exercise, go out to dinner, and drink good beer (all the more reason to exercise!).

You love living here, because: The foothills are beautiful, and the people are friendly. I’ve lived in Cameron Park for 23 years and love the small-town feel but proximity to bigger cities, mountains, and the ocean.
