A smooth, luscious, buttery caramel is a truly indulgent treat. Customers seeking a premium experience know that caramel delivers. To take this already-luxurious confection to another level of indulgence, consider using ingredients that will set your product above the crowd: grass-fed butter, local cream, premium nuts, or real vanilla bean.
Another way to upgrade your customer’s caramel experience is to add texture. Premium nuts and pralinés and crunch and flavor - try peanuts for nostalgic appeal or macadamias for a tropical twist. The brittle crunch of toffee paired with a luxe coating of couverture is unbeatable and a must-have for your gift selection.
There are many different varieties of caramel and endless possibilities for pairing and creative experimentation. It's a perfect balance of sweet and bitter. Its affinity for a little salt, and its amazing versatility make caramel a delight for chocolatiers seeking a creative outlet and those who focus on the classics. From childhood treats to exciting and indulgent experiences, the caramel craze is here to stay.
