Phenomenal Fudge uses Keebler brand Deluxe Grahams and they are soooo good. We mix them into our Chocolate Caramel fudge which makes them taste even better.
Our standard Chocolate Caramel fudge is made with our regular chocolate flavor and has caramel melted directly into the fudge. In fact, 20% of our chocolate caramel fudge is made with melted caramel. What could taste better than that? Maybe this month’s Flavor-of-the-Month!
But what exactly is caramel? Wikipedia states that caramel “is a medium to dark-orange confectionery product made by heating a variety of sugars. It can be used as a flavoring in puddings and desserts, as a filling in bonbons, or as a topping for ice cream and custard.”
Try this great cookie recipe for Salted Caramel Dark Chocolate Cookie from our friend Sally. The kids will be glad to be home right along-side you “helping” to make them!
Or, perhaps a candy apple could make your day. The process of making hard candy caramel is quite interesting. “As the sugar heats up and mixes with melted butter, the molecules break down and re-form into a characteristic color and flavor,” says Wikipedia. Homemade Caramel is easy to make too.
Find out more about the chemistry involved in how caramel is produced, the coloring, the sauce, the language the word it is derived from and the origin of toffee.
Much debate has occurred over the correct spelling of caramel. When discussing food or flavors choose “caramel” using three syllables. When discussing people or places choose “carmel” with two syllables. Just to be sure, look at your ingredient label of this month’s Fudge-of-the-Month: Chocolate Caramel Cookie. No matter how you spell it, pronounce or spoon it out of the tub, it certainly is delicious!
