Welcome to Day #2 of Chocolate Surprise Theme Week.

Today's Alaska Pure Spicy Salted Chocolate Caramels were created by Chef Stef's (Juneau, AK). This package of six caramels were carefully transported back to California and given to me by a frequent traveler and friend. (Thank you again Toni for this chocolate surprise!)

These individually-wrapped, soft brown sugar caramels were seasoned with Gulf of Alaska sea salt and had a spicy kick at the end. (Ingredients: sweetened condensed milk, brown sugar, corn syrup, butter, unsweetened chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla, cayenne pepper, black pepper, sea salt, hot sauce pepper.)

Many years ago I visited Anchorage, Alaska, and during my visit there I tasted some remarkable chocolates, including some made with native berries—and two made with bits of smoked salmon and anchovy and blueberry, respectively. (Both were skillfully made and much better than you'd think.) Thank goodness for places with room for big ideas.
