Today's Classic Caramel -- part of Amella Caramels' 18-piece, dark chocolate Agave Collection assortment box -- was made with cocoa butter (in addition to cream, butter, and soy lecithin), and sweetened with sugar and organic blue agave nectar, instead of corn syrup.
Caramel varies. This golden goo can be stiff and chewy or semi-liquid. The mix of ingredients (above) in these Amella chocolates yielded a caramel center with a unique texture. It was very smooth and dissolved rapidly, giving it had a uniquely quick melt for a caramel. I'm assuming this is due in part to the company's use of cocoa butter. The card described the consistency as being a cross between a caramel and a truffle.
I look forward to tasting the Gray Sea Salt and Double Dark Chocolate caramels tomorrow, and the Roasted Almonds flavor for an upcoming week that will focus on Chocolate and Almonds.
Today was Day #8 of Chocolate and Caramel Theme Week.
