Today was Day #7 of Chocolate and Sea Salt Theme Week, and Day #1 of Chocolate and Caramel Theme Week. In the last several years, there has been an increase in the number of chocolates and caramels with salts from every corner of the globe.
Today's salted caramels from Monique's Chocolates (Palo Alto, CA) were substantial, chewy gems, topped with just the right amount of coarsely ground salt crystals for added taste and texture.
I bought a few of these caramels "to go." They were cleverly packed in a small, customized Chinese restaurant-style take-out container.
