Salted caramels are all the rage amongst chocolateers these days. And in my opinion, Fran’s Chocolates makes the creme de la creme.
I received a 3-tiered box of chocolates ($90) from my PR agency for Christmas and have been itching to have more ever since. I reluctantly shared the tier of the heavenly chocolates with the office but was able to sneak a box of the award-winning smoked and gray salted caramels home to share with the family.
The salted caramels are made of “rich smooth chocolate, soft buttery caramel and the unexpected boldness of the gray and smoked salt.” The mouthwatering, chewy goodness had me smiling at first bite… and the whole 5 minutes after the experience.
You can purchase a box of 20 gray and smoked salted caramels for $24 on Franschocolates.com. If that’s too pricy for you, you can try the salted caramels from Trader Joe’s. They’re completely different than Fran’s (hard shell filled with liquid caramel), but they’re good in its own way.
