National Caramel Day: Where to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth
National Caramel Day is the perfect excuse to indulge in the decadent, rich flavor of this chewy candy. Made from a mixture of caramelized sugar, cream, butter and vanilla, caramel is a treat all on its own. Though the basic ingredients of caramel are always the same, the ratios can be changed and more ingredients can be added to make this time-honored, classic candy even more flavorful. There are endless ways to enjoy caramel— use it as a topping on your favorite caffeinated drink, cover it in chocolate for a candy with a chewy center, or add it in with a baked dessert. Whichever way you choose to consume your caramel, we have you covered when it comes to options. We’ve compiled a list of our favorite spots to enjoy caramel in all of its forms:
Cravory keeps it real with their perfectly soft and rich Salted Caramel Cream Cookie. The caramel is made in house and it’s the perfect combo of salt, caramel, and vanilla. They’ve also added espresso powder and instant coffee to the mix, because who doesn’t love coffee with their caramel?
If chocolate and caramel are your favorite pair, then this one’s for you. The Rol-e-ol-ee-o is a rich dark chocolate cupcake with a caramel center, topped with caramel buttercream frosting, then dipped in dark chocolate. Yes, please!
Señor Peanut at Azucar is a delectable choice for National Caramel Day. It’s deliciously rich, so we suggest paring it with a glass of milk. This dessert is a chocolate cookie crust topped with salted caramel and peanuts. To add to it’s flavor, Señor Peanut has a peanut butter cream cheese filling and it’s glazed in chocolate ganache.
We love the Sea Salt Caramel Mocha because it’s dessert for breakfast. The caramel is a strong part of the flavor profile in this drink rather than a simple topping, so this sweet beverage is definitely worthy of a sip on National Caramel Day.
Not a big fan of caramel’s chewy texture, but still love the flavor? That’s alright. You can find a strong caramel component in San Diego Brewing Company’s Glasgow Kiss. Cheers to National Caramel Day!
From cookies to beer, there is something for everyone to enjoy on National Caramel Day. How will you celebrate?
