Salted Caramel Dreams

Hey everyone :)

I can't remember how I started following Fatties Bakery. I have been following them on Instagram for ages! When I found out they had a book during the Christmas period - I just had to get it off Amazon.

Like the masses I fell in love with salted caramel - it's one of my favourite flavours now and the amount of things it can be added too, made with, mixed with ... the possibilities are endless.

My favourite salted caramel thing at the moment is Häagen-Dazs Salted Caramel Ice Cream - it's currently on special in Tesco for £2.50 (half price) and I think so far I'm on my ninth or tenth tub! I can't help myself - if you haven't already go and buy a tub! I can't stop thinking about it!!

There are over 70 different recipes in the book. My favourite parts of the book are the techniques and equipment sections - they explain what ingredients you should be using to achieve the best end product and what equipment you should have or be using when making caramel.

It also explains the difference between wet and dry caramel - YES there is such a thing and they are both quite different!

One of my favourite recipes in the book and that features on the Fatties Bakery Instagram page quite a lot is the "Cornflake Bocaditos" - they are basically made with salted caramel and cornflakes and then sprayed gold!

Let me know if you have ever been down to their market stall (which I need to do) or if you have bought the book and made anything!
