Seven caramel desserts better than gold

  • Food & Booze
Caramel: liquid gold to anyone with a sweet tooth and the perfect companion to all manner of desserts. You can put it with chocolate, fruit, popcorn, salt, ice-cream and all manner of other sweet things and still end up with a match made in heaven. At least that’s what we discovered when we went hunting for the most scrumptious caramel recipes we could find. Enjoy.  Caramel Macarons | Call Me Cupcake Caramel1Call me a slob, but I’m drooling over these perfectly formed macaroons sandwiched together with golden caramel sauce. Ours probably won’t end up looking like that but they’ll still taste as good, right? Chocolate Caramel Tart | My Baking Addiction caramel7If you just tried to lick the computer screen, we understand. Just look at that perfect chocolate crust, that oozing caramel, that shiny ganache… seriously, stop licking the picture and get baking. Double Chocolate Salted Caramel Donuts | Carla’s Confections caramel2Good god, get out of our dreams and into our belly already. Do-nut stop to think about the calories, these babies are totally worth giving up a thigh gap for. Dairy Free Maple Caramel Ice Cream with Chocolate Popcorn topping | The Artful Desperado caramel3Yes, yes, yes to everything about is this. Caramel, tick. Ice cream, tick. Chocolate, tick. A heavenly crunch, tick. Dairy free? Double, triple, quadruple tick! Salted Caramel Banoffee Eclairs | Donal Skehan caramel4Oh my, crispy French pastry filled with vanilla crème and slathered in banana caramel sauce? Don’t mind if I choux. Chocolate Salted Caramel Pudding Pops | Endless Simmer caramel5These frozen treats prove that caramel doesn’t have to be soft and gooey to be delicious. The hardest part of this recipe will be waiting for them to freeze. Salted Caramel Almond Granola | Joyful Healthy Eats caramel6This recipe turns caramel into a perfectly acceptable breakfast food. Not that it wasn’t already, but you know, you eat caramel slice for breakfast and people stare, things get weird, whatever – it’s just not done. Plus we figured we should have at least one healthy recipe on the list. They might not plump up your wallet but this gold will certainly make you happy. So what are you doing still staring at the screen? They aren’t going to make themselves! Words by Ranyhyn Akui
