Will the salted caramel trend never end? Probably not because we, and everyone else on the planet, love it way too much. The perfect balance of sweet and savoury make it quite a sophisticated flavouring. You wouldn’t think it, but it just works- OK!?
If you ever need to sound a little bit posh cooking for your parents or in-laws or something, choose one of these insane recipes we found out there from the following epic bloggers…
1. SALTED CARAMEL CUPS
Imagine Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups but instead of peanut butter, they’re filled with salted caramel! These are the ultimate salted caramel fix for one mouthful. The recipe should probably come with a disclaimer or something for being totally delicious.
2. DARK CHOCOLATE AND SALTED CARAMEL CUPCAKES
Chocolate cupcakes with a creamy and smooth frosting drizzled with an oozing caramel and salted flakes. The recipe is quick and easy because the batter can be made with shop bought cake mix! The time you save can be used for the intricate piping and decoration that make these cakes look outstanding.
3. SALTED CARAMEL MACARONS WITH A WHIPPED CARAMEL FILLING
These are by far the best salted caramel macarons out there and the recipe comes with a great guide to baking the perfect macaron. The finished effect is cute and coy with a tasty crunch. But best avoid baking on a rainy or humid day as macarons don’t like that one bit!
4. SALTED CARAMEL FILLED MOLTEN CHOCOLATE CAKES
You’ll need some ramekins on hand for these unbelievable little puds. Anything with a molten centre seems tricky right? Well wrong. There’s even a step by step image guide for this recipe to help you along. It’s seriously achievable, even for beginners. Give it a go. What have you got to lose? Not weight clearly…
5. SALTED CARAMEL CHOCOLATE TART
Things are getting hectic now. An entire tart dedicated to yours truly. This is great for any celebration or party. Chocolate tarts are notoriously easy to make and this one goes to another dimension. You can elegantly drizzle white chocolate over the finished bake to get it looking just like the picture.
6. CANDIED BACON SALTED CARAMEL
Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it. Bacon comes in useful with everything and with salted caramel, it’s to die for. This sauce can be spread anywhere… on toast or even to fill chocolate eggs like the blog post suggests. For perfect results, it’s recommended that you have a sugar thermometer.
7. PUMPKIN SPICED LATTE MUFFINS WITH PECAN STREUSEL & SALTED CARAMEL
Maybe you only fancy a slight hint of salted caramel on some cakes or muffins rather than total domination of the entire recipe? This one’s for you then. Especially if you’re missing the good old pumpkin lattes from Starbucks. The muffins are spiked with coffee, topped with pecan crumble, then finally drizzled with salted caramel.
8. SALTED CARAMEL SAUCE
Sometimes you just need the most basic of basic- a salted caramel sauce. Then you can pair it with everything and anything! With just 4 ingredients and 20 minutes you can’t really go wrong! Make it the day before your mates come over and pair with cake, brownies, ice cream… the list goes on and on.
The happiest of eating to you. Go wild.
