Salted Caramel is the New Pumpkin Spice
Sure, we still like spiced pumpkin things around here – pies, tarts, hot beverages, ice creams, brownies etc. – but according to MyFitnessPal, the flavor of Salted Caramel is taking Fall 2015 by storm!
We aren’t saying that Pumpkin Spice or PSL cravings (Pumpkin Spice Latte) are going away, it just seems as though we are now more open to other decadent autumnal flavors.
Of course, we have always been big Salted Caramel fans here at Bakepedia. The image up top is of our Bacon Bourbon Salted Caramel Popcorn – also referred to as “crack corn” around the Test Kitchen.
Or if you are in the mood for brownies, try the Salted Caramel Brownies. Homemade caramel make these as indulgent as you can get; just look at the closeup above!
David Lebovitz brought us his Salted Butter Caramel-Chocolate Mousse. We dare you to try and make this without licking the spatula! Make sure to use a high quality flaky sea salt for that textural contrast.
Thinking outside the box we created Sweet & Savory Fried Vidalia Onion Rings served with a Salted Bourbon Honey Caramel Dipping Sauce. The title is a mouthful and so are these slightly sweet yet savory treats. As with all fried foods, they are best enjoyed right after frying, so plan carefully.
For something a little lower if fat, we turn to this meringue creation from the Meringue Girls: Salted Caramel, Poached Pear and Chocolate Drizzle Meringue Slab.
If you are looking for cookies, Danny from Danny Macaroons brought us his Salted Caramel Macaroons. These are not your everyday deli macaroons.
If you want to order some serious deliciousness, look no further than The Whoopie Wagon. My friend Mary Bandereck knows her whoopies and the Salted Caramel Whoopie Pies above will be delivered straight to your door.
