National Caramel Day

Today's date is April 5th and it's National Caramel Day!  I've put together a collection of caramel photos I've taken for you to drool over.  Sorry if I make you hungry but I've heard looking at dessert photos is almost as good as eating them.  Almost being a relative term.  Caramel is a well loved favorite among many and can be used in a variety of ways.  Paired with chocolate, it's unstoppable and makes a very sweet and rich treat.  Add some sea salt and it tastes like heaven.  I love this combination in cupcakes, ice cream, and chocolates.  The different ways to eat caramel are endless.  Today instead of eating it, I'm just going to look at photos because I'm fresh out of anything caramel in my house.  It might be just as satisfying.

For something different, try using caramel on your s'more instead of chocolate.  We did on a vacation back home to Montana one summer, and we loved it. 

Quinn's, a Gastropub on Capital Hill, had bacon caramel corn on the menu as a appetizer.  So unique and delicious and a perfect start to my dinner.  Click here to read about my meal at Quinn's.
