Ever since I first had one of these caramels at a friend’s wedding a couple years ago, I was hooked, obsessed, and a sweet tooth convert all at once. They were from Boule patisserie. I went and bought a $20 box of them and gave them as gifts that following Christmas. Since then, the lower brow version has come on the scene, The Little Flower Candy Company makes smaller, chaper ones that are quite tasty. And since then, I have been making them myself. Spending $20 now means gifts for about 8 people, not just one.
Now that’s what I call ‘less is more’.
Paula Deen would be so proud. Another form of butter, cream and sugar at its best.. salty, creamy, buttery, and sweet all rolled into a tiny cigar-like slug of love.
