“MEG” – at long last, a CHOCOLATE caramel!

$9.00$25.95

When I first launched Caramels de Bouchard, it didn’t take long for people to start asking for chocolate caramels.  I am a chocolate snob, having lived in Europe for 12 years, there really is no comparison to European chocolates.  Chocolate is in itself an art form, and, having no experience in it, I shelved the idea for a bit. I have sampled every chocolate covered caramel there is, and usually one flavor overpowers another.  I decided to simply focus on caramel, as it really is the only thing i know.

But, pressure grew.  Meg, my good friend from our UMASS days who was helping me get things off the ground, brought in all sorts of things for us to try.  (We can thank Meg for the smoked chocolate salt that graces “Belle Face”.)  We tried many variations on the recipe.  In the end we succeeded only in creating something that was truly appalling to look at and too hard to dare eat.  Once again, the idea was shelved.

But since Meg moved away I’ve made a few caramels, and it was while I was hunting for a pan one day, that I discovered what ended up being the piece de la resistance.  I was in the middle of a batch, so I immediately got to work to try to incorporate this discovery into the batch on the stove.  And I’m so glad I did, because it worked perfectly.

And here we are!  A gorgeously rich caramel infused with organic Dutch chocolate, the perfect balance of caramel-to-chocolate, which is soon to become the base of a whole new line of caramels in the Caramel de Bouchard family.

You’re welcome!
