Gruyère Cheese Caramels
Infused with authentic Gruyère AOP cheese from Switzerland, these caramels are sweet, savory, and umami — think bottom-of-the-fondue-pot flavor. The Gruyère AOP is melted into milk and cream and then folded into the caramelizing sugar, where it is finished with sea salt.
7 caramels, beautifully wrapped in a colorful 2 oz box, perfect for gifting or for keeping for your next self-care session. Enjoy with coffee, beer, wine, whisky, fruit nuts, or your favorite cheese. They are also dangerously addictive on their own!
WHAT ARE CHEESE CARAMELS?
CHEESE CARAMELS ARE THE BOMB! THEY ARE AN UNCTUOUS, DEEP, RICH FLAVORED CARAMEL UNLIKE ANYTHING ELSE. SWEET, SAVORY AND UMAMI ALL AT ONCE, THEY DEFY BOTH CATEGORIES OF CHEESE AND CARAMEL. CHEESE LOVERS LOVE THEM. CARAMEL LOVERS LOVE THEM, AND PEOPLE WHO ARE NORMALLY AVERSE TO EACH LOVE THEM.
HOW DO YOU MAKE CHEESE CARAMELS?
WE MAKE A CHEESE SAUCE BY MELTING FRESHLY GRATED CHEESE INTO HEAVY CREAM. WHEN THE SUGAR MIX IS CARAMELIZED IN A LARGE VAT, WE CAREFULLY POUR IN THE CHEESE SAUCE. IT IS IN THIS BEAUTIFUL MOMENT, THAT THE CHEESE AND SUGARS COOK AND MELT TOGETHER INTO ONE LUSCIOUS CARAMEL. WE POUR THE CARAMEL INTO LARGE SHEETS, ALLOW IT TO SET OVER NIGHT, AND THEN PACKAGE IT FOR YOUR OWN ENJOYMENT.
HOW SHOULD I EAT CHEESE CARAMELS?
WE LIKE THEM STRAIGHT OUT OF THE BOX AS CANDIES, BUT CHEESE CARAMEL IS ALSO GREAT ADDED TO A CHEESE BOARD OR AS A PAIRING FOR COFFEE, WINE, WHISKY, OR BEER. IF YOU'RE FEELING CULINARY, IT'S ALSO AWESOME MELTED WITH A LITTLE WATER OR CREAM ON THE STOVE TOP, AND THEN DRIZZLED OVER POPCORN.
