Caramels - Gourmet Guide
June 12, 2019 | By Dave Mattingly
To make Gourmet Caramels, butter, milk, corn syrup, salt and/or flavorings are added to the boiling sugar. The butter and milk help to soften the texture and makes the Caramel candy easier to chew. Some confectioners then dip the Caramels in chocolate, or add a sprinkling of chopped nuts or sel gris to play off the salty-sweet combination.
Caramel In Desserts
Caramels are often enjoyed on their own, as in the classic French confection, Salted Butter Caramels. Caramel can also be poured hot over ice cream for a classic, indulgent Sundae. Spain's most famous dessert, Flan, is known as Crème Caramel in many parts of the world. This dessert features a soft caramel on top of creamy custard. Dulce de Leche is another popular Caramel product.
