Welcome to Day #6 of Chocolate and Salted Caramel Theme Week.
Dulce de Leche is a cooked down caramel confection (made with either milk and sugar, or sweetened condensed milk).
This caramel featured prominently in today's Dulce de Leche bar from Bissinger's (St. Louis, MO).
This "38% milk chocolate, creamy caramel, cinnamon and a touch of smoked fleur de sel" bar contained pockets of soft caramel—the kind of filling that forms tiny, sweet golden brown "icicles" after you bite into the chocolate.
On the back of this gluten free, bar made with Non-GMO ingredients was a constellation of tiny, twinkling smoked sea salt (fleur de sel) crystals.
