I didn’t always like caramel sauce, in fact, I was not a fan until I made my Twix Recipe! As I was melting the caramel for the Twix, I took a few pieces of candy and ate some and I LIKED it! The next day, I stopped by Starbucks I ordered a Salted Caramel Frap and I took my first sip and fell hard for salted caramel.
How did I go through my whole life without salted caramel, it’s DELICIOUS! I started looking through my recipe book finding ingredients with caramel and tweaking it according to my taste!
