Divine Caramel Creations
You may want to ask yourself this; Where to buy sea salt caramels or just finding a caramel candy store online. Well this past Valentine’s weekend a little package from Colbert, Washington arrived at my door step. I thought, maybe it’s a secret admirer of some sort, but better it was Divine Caramel Creations. I opened the shipping box and I quickly glanced at an angel holding a basket of treats. I also thought I got everything out of the shipping box but another treat was waiting. Beneath the red wrapping paper was their newest creation, Caramel Apple stack.
Where do I start? I’m writing this article and sampling their Vanilla Sea Salt Caramel. The first thing I thought of is a small glass of milk. Yeah right. I will have a bad afternoon if you know what I mean. So that thought quickly vanished. As soon as I knew it I had another. The first one I tried I put the whole thing in my mouth. That’s way I like to eat candy. Unlike most caramels it doesn’t get stuck in your teeth. That’s a good thing. As the caramel starts to melt away, the sea salt arrives to compete with the sweetness of the caramel. My first swallow was paramount. I actually tasted the vanilla in the back of my tongue to ease conflict between the saltiness and sweetness. I wanted this to happen again, and that is why I had another.
Even though I have Huckleberry, Cinnamon Apple Cranberry, and Expresso Sea Salt caramels in my possession, I have to try this Apple Stack. I mean look at it. As you can see, that nice layer of creamy caramel covering dried apple rings. Mind you Ellie, the founder of DCC and her staff picks, peels, slices and dehydrates apples from orchards surrounding her business.
So I opened the candy wrapper and the apple tart aroma cruises out. You know its tart when your glands starts to react. I tried to tear myself a piece without the pecans falling off. Speaking of the pecans, it’s a great canvas for texture in my opinion. As mentioned above the apples are dehydrated and they’re kind of stacked against each other. That itself creates another element of surprises on your palate. Then finally the caramel starts to melt away but then again it acts like a bonding agent to hold everything together. Ellie is pure genius in my book.
