If anyone is looking for a fairly quick and impressive recipe, salted caramels may just be up your alley! I’ve made my original salted caramel recipe a few times now and just about have it down to a science, but this time I wanted to do something a bit different,so I decided to add some vanilla beans to it. Seriously though, who doesn’t love the warm aroma of vanilla beans and the gorgeous little brown specs of beans really add a level of sophistication to a dish. After making the original recipe and these Vanilla Bean Salted Caramels, I must admit that I LOVE the vanilla version. Let’s get to the recipe, so you can decide for yourself. Continue reading
If you’ve been following our Facebook Page, you might know that we’ve been asked by CTV Morning Live Saskatoon (a local news station in our city) to come on air to do a cooking segment. When Bob & I got the news we were pretty excited and started racking our brains for what we could make under their requested theme of “Grey Cup Party”. We knew we should stick to our classics with Bob covering the grilled cheese front and myself, tackling the cupcakes. But my brain had a bit of a “food block” – how can you make a cupcake appropriate for a football party?? Now here was my thought pattern: football…party…manly men yelling at a TV…beer….pretzels...okay, now let’s combine them into something sweet, salty and decadent: The Beer Buddy Cupcake – a beer infused chocolate cupcake topped with a Salted Caramel Buttercream and garnished with pretzels. Voila! Game day appropriate cupcakes! Now let’s get to the recipe…

I come to you with news of defeat and news of triumph. The case: Salted Caramels. Last week, I was on the hunt for a goodie that would put a smile on someone’s face and also be mail worthy (i.e. Fit into a small package and be able to stay fresh and tasty for at least four days). I also wanted something a bit out of the norm – everyone has had homemade cookies, but how many people have had homemade salted caramels? So obviously, these little caramels quickly became my weapon of choice.
