"You'll be surprised at how quick and easy this pastry is to make… definitely not as intimidating as it looks! A perfect dessert when you want to impress someone!"—Ceecee L.
Natalie's Butterscotch Bars
"These gooey butterscotch bars are similar to a blondie, made with butterscotch, chocolate chips, and marshmallows."—Natalie
Heather's Abita Pecan Beer Caramel Corn
"We love food and we love beer. It seemed like the right combo so we generally create all our recipes with beer. This came about after a trip to NoLa and my love of the praline. I just needed more CRUNCH. So we came up with this delicious caramel corn recipe. The caramel is made with Abita (A Louisiana beer btw) pecan beer, cream and sugar and then poured over fluffy popcorn, pretzels and pecans."—Heather J.
Yael's Coconut Milk Caramels
"I created these coconut milk caramel for a friend who is vegan. I swapped out the heavy cream for full fat coconut milk and the butter for earth balance. The coconut flavor ends up being very subtle. Actually, I found they end up taking on a sort of roasted-marshmallow-y flavor. Almost hard to tell that they are coconut milk based at all! A great recipe for your vegan friends, your lactose intolerant friends, and your kosher friends. Your friends won't believe they're dairy free."—Yael E.
Laura's Salted Caramel Cupcakes
"I'm not typically the biggest cupcake fan but some leftover caramel sauce led me to make these Salted Caramel Cupcakes. I fell in love after one bite. From the brown sugar cake to the caramel filling and the caramel Italian meringue buttercream topped with sea salt, these are pure decadence with caramel in every bite."—Laura D.
Jocelyn's Caramel Apple Pound Cake
"This cake is a cream cheese pound cake with a rich caramel sauce poured over sauteed apples."—Jocelyn A.
Haley's Salted Banana Cream Pie
"In my mind, there is no dessert that can't be improved by adding salted caramel, and this salted caramel banana cream pie is no exception. The salt contrasts with and heightens the flavor of the sweet bananas and vanilla pastry cream, and the caramel imparts a lovely burnt sugar flavor."—Haley L.
Gayle's Pear Tarte Tatin
"I make a pear tarte tatin with red wine caramel - you can see the caramel pooling under the pears in this picture. While baking, the caramel bubbles around the edges of the puff pastry crust tucked in around the pears, and then thickens as it cools to dye the perimeter a deep crimson. I sometimes make extra caramel to drizzle over vanilla ice cream. Amazing!"—Gayle S.
Heather's Caramel Pecan Shortbread Cookies
"A simple shortbread cookie becomes more sophisticated by adding homemade caramel sauce (in place of sugar) and toasted pecans. The cookies would be a wonderful addition to holiday cookie trays."—Heather H.
Gillian's Caramel Bars
"The caramel in these bars is the breakout star. How could it not be? Because, technically, it's peanut butter caramel. Spread between a layer of graham cracker crust and marshmallow creme, all beneath a crunchy shell of chocolate, the caramel raises the bar for traditional s'mores. It ups the game. You may just find yourself packing a jar on your next campfire outing, though it may not make it very far outside your kitchen if you're crazy enough to dip a spoon into this rich sauce (repeatedly) and decide you just can't afford to share."—Gillian G.
Nicole's Salted Caramel Cupcakes with Rum Caramel Cream Cheese Frosting
"Even though there are 3 uses and 2 different types of caramel in this cupcake, the deep chocolate, nutty crust, and tangy frosting keep this treat from getting too sweet. The caramel cream cheese frosting uses a homemade caramel with butter, cream, brown sugar, and any booze of your choosing. The alcohol adds another dimension to the frosting that no one can ever quite put their finger on so it'll be your own secret ingredient."—Nicole
Nicole's Gingerbread Caramel Corn
"Gingerbread Caramel Corn has a slight kick from the ginger and the richness from the molasses. With one bite, you won't want to go back to plain."—Nicole L.
Kakugori's Oatmeal Cookies With Butterscotch Chips
"I used the Quaker oatmeal cookie recipe, from under the lid. I replaced the raisins with butterscotch chips, then decided it needs about twice that much...) The butterscotch chips are leftover from making candies for Halloween - thus the little pumpkin."—Kakugori I.
Posie's Applesauce Cake With Salted Caramel Glaze
"This cake is incredibly moist and best with homemade applesauce and the caramel glaze is actually addictive."—Posie H.
