Fall has arrived in Vermont

Fall has arrived in Vermont soon to be followed by what we locals call " stick season".  As much as I love the colors of fall foliage I have a deep appreciation for stick season.  The canopy of trees without their leaves is still a beautiful thing to see, so delicate and intricate but strong enough to endure the harshness of winter in Vermont.  Enjoying a dark chocolate sea salted caramel makes it even more wonderful to behold!

Blackstrap molasses caramels

Hello sweet friends!  In an effort to create a caramel with little to no corn syrup I am in the process of working on a blackstrap molasses caramel.  The current batch has reduced the corn syrup by 50% and it turned out soft and incredibly delicious.  Like the Black and Tans they are dipped in dark chocolate and sprinkled with sea salt. They can be purchased from my website www.caramelbydawn.com for  $12.00 for a box of fifteen pieces.

2018 brings in cold!

Welcome 2018!  It has started out a bitter cold one...a little colder than 2017 ended with.  Did you receive some chocolate this year for the holidays that looked funny? Do not fear your loved one did not purchase a product that was old, more likely it just got incredibly cold!  A mere 5 minutes in a car in these 0- sub zero temps is all it takes to shock your chocolate.  What happens is the sugar not normally visible in your chocolate absorbs moisture from the cold air, then when that moisture evaporates as your chocolate warms back up the sugar crystals recrystallize larger and are visible as white rough spots on the surface of your chocolate!
