One of the most popular flavors across the board, salted caramel sounds perplexing, but like all sweet-salty combinations, there's simple science behind the phenomenon! Like chocolate and peanut butter, yogurt-dipped pretzels, caramel popcorn and maple-cured bacon, sweet + salty is a match made in heaven. Here's how it works: by combining salty and sweet flavors, the salt actually makes the sweet element (chocolate, carmel, ice cream) taste even sweeter! Here's a simple, elegant recipe for making your own salted caramel at home and a variety of ways to use it!
