In 1982, with some chocolate, pecans, butter and a special family recipe, Margaret Carlson began making toffee one pound at a time on her home kitchen stove in Homer Township, IL.

She started selling her candy at small craft shows and soon needed to start taking orders for friends and family as word spread about the quality and freshness of her product. Her husband, Chester, retired and began making the toffee with Margaret. Before long, Margaret’s signature toffee was in high demand. In 1993, daughter, Wendy, joined them and she continues the tradition now, bringing Hollingworth Candies home to you.


Today, Hollingworth Candies produces more than 15,000 pounds of toffee each year to satisfy the sweet tooth of every customer. Though toffee remains Hollingworth’s most popular seller, the company also makes Cashew Brittle, Chesters, Gourmet Caramel Apples, Sea Salt Toffee, Sea Salt Caramels, Chocolate Dipped Strawberries and much more. Margaret has added  her own line of molded chocolates - Maggie's Creations. Each one is hand-painted with colored chocolate and molded into delicious, artful, chocolate creations.
