One day some 15 years ago, a friend gifted Pete DeWolf a box of toffee.
Though it was quickly devoured, the toffee got DeWolf’s gears turning.
“I thought, ‘Wow, this is delicious. However, if I were to make it, this is how I would do differently,’ ” he said.
And thus began his efforts to create his own recipe. The rest is sweet history.
DeWolf began Steamboat Toffee Co. nearly 10 years ago. Within the last few months, he expanded the business and opened Red Rocks Toffee Co. on Goddard Ranch Court in Morrison.
