Lately caramel or more specifically salted caramel is popping up wherever you go, with salted caramel donuts, cakes and pies wherever you go, this delicious new caramel trend has gooey caramel topped with large flakes of salt, for a perfect combination of sweet and salty flavour. Caramel is a beige to dark brown confectionery product that is made by heating different sugars at the proper temperatures. Caramel can be used as a flavoring to enhance puddings and desserts, as a filling in candies, or as a topping for ice cream and custards. The process of caramelization entails the heating sugar slowly to around 340 degrees Fahrenheit. As the sugar heats up, the molecules in the sugar break down and re form into compounds that have a characteristic color and flavor. There are a wide variety of candies, desserts, and confections that are made with caramel such as brittles, nougats, pralines, crème brûlée, crème caramel, and caramel apples. Ice creams are a popular treat that are sometimes flavored with or contain swirls of caramel. Popular caramel treats can include caramel candy apples, toffee, Caramilk chocolate bar, and caramel corn popcorn.
