The Holm Made Toffee Company owner Donna Holm, makes some pretty sweet treats. Award winning, in fact.

GLIDE, Ore. -- The fourth time is a charm for a Douglas County Confectioner.

The Holm Made Toffee Company is one of three Douglas County candy companies recognized at this year's Oregon Chocolate Festival in Ashland.

After four years, judges awarded Holm Made with 'Best Chocolate Candy' for their hazlenut toffee with lavender.

And by popular vote, they also won the People's Choice Award. Owner Donna Holm says she is happy with how the festival turned out. "Holm Made Toffee Company was recognized twice, and it was just, kind of an affirmation that what we're doing is the right thing and people are loving our toffee,” she said.

Holm Made is based out of Glide, but can be found at 25 locations across Douglas and Lane counties.
