I had to make a chocolate cake with Nutella and toffee bits. It tasted great, but Nutella has a hazel nut/chocolate flavor. Maybe you could make a ganache and put the toffee bits into it. As far as a toffee cream. Maybe you could flavor the ganache with some capuccino syrup in a toffee flavor.

You could make a toffee-flavored custard, then fold with some whipped cream to make a fluffy cream if they want it lighter. Then spread ganache thinly on each side of the layers and the custard in the center.

I love toffee custard, very rich though. Hope you find what works for them and you! icon_smile.gif

I did an IMBC in white chocolate with those Heath toffee bits folded in and it was fantastic. If you're going for a lighter texture you could use Pastry Pride or something like that flavored chocolate. The Faux Bavarian Mousse in chocolate flavor with the toffee bits would be good. HTH

World Market sells a chocolate caramel spread similar to nutella that I've used as a cake filling, it is yummy !!! I bet if you mixed in some crushed heath bar it would be awesome. You could prob fold it insome whipped cream to make it lighter. Mmm...I might have to bake a cake and experiment myself.

What about a Skor bar crushed with either ganache or BC? Toffee and chocolate sounds YUMMY!
