I have had them in my mind’s eye for a while - I can’t resist salted caramel and add it to any recipe I can. For example – it makes a perfect topping to my light fluffy banana cake (you should totally try that one out!!!!) as a filling in the chocolate salted caramel cupcakes – as a topping on the salted caramel cheesecake or even drizzled over ice cream – it’s heaven every time!
