One of my most favorite food indulgences in life (outside of the cupcake), is a soft, ooeygooey, melt in your mouth, buttery, handmade caramel! Like cupcakes, caramels come in a tempting array of flavors, most of which I will devour without hesitation (Except those black licorice flavored ones!). However, nothing quite tops a well made salt caramel, or a Fleur De Sel caramel as the French refer to it.
I remember having my first one ever. It was at Marshal Fields of all places. I must have been like 15. Even at that tender age I knew that I was eating something special. It was dipped in chocolate and had a stripe of gray salt sprinkled across the top. Mmm... I have been on the lookout for those little bites of yum ever since! Just so happens that I stumble upon a shop on Etsy that sells some! Let me tell you that these have just been added to my MUST TRY list, along with their Mayan Chocolate and English Tea Time flavors! Wouldn't this just make the perfect Mother's Day gift? (hint, hint /wink)
I found these delectable yummies in a shop called Have it Sweet, and it is run by the Eco-conscious duo Vincent and Bethany of Glendale, California. Sweet confections may be the base of their business, but it seems to be that they put just as much time and effort into making sure they are running an eco responsible business as well! Check out their profile here to read about all the great ways this company takes strides to lessen their impact on the environment and the cause your purchases help support. Gives new meaning to guilt free snacking!
