Fran's Smoked Salt Caramels
I'm a fan of all things that mix sweet and salty, so when I first tasted the rising confectionary trend combining chocolate, sea salt, and caramel, I was hooked. Fran's Chocolates, a company based out of Seattle, just kicked it up a notch with their introduction of a version that utilizes smoked Welsh sea salt. Sweet and complex, the savory punch perfectly compliments the buttery caramel and milk chocolate. And the handmade chocolates took home the 2005 Outstanding Confection Award at the Fancy Food Show this week to boot.
