Today was Day #2 of Chocolate and Pepper Theme Week. San Francisco-based Nosh This offers a variety of salt caramels and confections, including Bacon Crack -- written about previously on Chocolate Banquet. This Salt and Pepper Caramel was very good. The chocolate coatings and caramel centers were well executed; and I enjoyed the micro-bursts of freshly ground black pepper flavor, amongst savory salt overtones.
Unfortunately, while I was getting my camera out earlier to photograph these caramels, I laid this small package to rest on my dining room table -- directly under a skylight, for a few minutes. And the sun had its way with this artfully prepared treat. It still tasted wonderful, but I'm not including a picture for this reason.
