Salted Caramel Recipes
It’s no secret how much I love a salted caramel recipe (I’ve even put all of my favourite salted caramel treats together in one super yummy recipe collection – click here to check them out!!!!). And it’s also no secret that 99.99999% of the time, my salted caramel obsession is with ALL the naughty things… salted caramel sauce, salted caramel mud cake, salted caramel cheesecake slice… you get the idea, right!!??
