April 5 is National Caramel Day and you should absolutely celebrate.
Few treats taste better than sweet, buttery, gooey caramel, and we are thrilled that there is a whole day set aside for us to indulge. So in honor of this special day, here are five delicious salted caramel sweet recipes, plus, believe it or not, one savory dish, so that you can enjoy the tasty treat for dinner and dessert.
A caramel base topped with a thick layer of salted caramel frosting, with a piece of caramel candy on top? Yes please! These caramel bombs will definitely feed your addiction.
Because this gooey, creamy caramel recipe never goes out of style.
These super easy to make caramel and chocolate dipped potato chips are simple and completely delicious. Perfect for a party appetizer or a bed time snack (or breakfast – hey, we won’t judge you), these treats don’t get any more easy or delicious.
Check out how delicious these bars look. The best part? This recipe is ridiculously easy and adaptable (salted Nutella butter bar!) and the buttery crust, chewy caramel and rich delicious taste will keep you smiling.
There are two ways to jazz up this classic dessert cocktail, and they are both delicious: Either swap out one of your ingredients with caramel-flavored booze (caramel vodka, caramel Kahlua, or replace the half and half with caramel-flavored Baileys – you’ll thank us later), or just dump your regular White Russian ingredients in a cocktail shaker with a half tablespoon of caramel and give it a good shaking. Really, you can’t go wrong with this one.
And one savory bonus dish…
We know how weird this sounds, but you’ve got to trust us and make this delectable sweet, savory caramel chicken. Ginger, soy sauce and vinegar bring a dark, tangy complexity to balance out the buttery sweetness. Together, it caramelizes and creates a thick, rich sauce that’ll have you licking your fingers and asking for more.
