A Little Treat – To Give or Keep

Looking for an elegant and tasty way to remember someone during the holiday?  You can’t go wrong with any of Fran’s products but I love the salt caramels!  These are the Gray Salt Caramels (dipped in dark chocolate) but there are also Smoked Salt Caramels (milk chocolate) – or you can get a combo box.  And I love the festive red box (7 pieces for $11.50).  Check out the stores or website for other great gift ideas…  even if the gift is for you – as this box was for me!

    Is salt something new to use on top of sweet treats?  I\’ve been thinking about making these bars to add to my Christmas trays…they have sea salt sprinkled on top.  As a fan of sweet and salty, I\’m just afraid I\’ll like them too much and they\’ll never make it to the trays!
     
    I enjoy your space very much.

    @ The Silhouette Writer:  they really are very good!
     
    @Cindy:  You know salt has always been used to bring out the flavor of sweets but maybe not so obviously.  And, like you say, the combo of sweet and salty is really appealing (think of chocolate covered pretzels and how long they have been popular…).  I think what is probably driving more recipes that showcase the two is actually the proliferation (and ease of access to) all of the new sea salts.  Just my guess… 
     
    Glad you are enjoying the site!
