Sweet Sunday: Annie B’s Chocolate and Fall Inspired Caramels

DSC_1194

Annie B’s Caramels are the best of the best: slow cooked in a cooper pot, creating comforting buttery goodness. As a hostess, I would place caramels in a bowl as people were entering my home if it were a tea or dessert-focused party. Or, I would include these caramels in gift bags and as part of a dessert table at a gathering. It is hard to resist eating more than one!

I had the recent opportunity to try their chocolate caramel collection that is now made with cocoa that is taking their chocolate, chocolate raspberry, and chocolate sea salt caramels to a whole new level of heavenly chocolate delight. My favorite of the three was the chocolate sea salt. When you entwine chocolate, caramel, and sea salt, it is a blanket of paradise on the tastebuds. I had two a day for about six days.
