Helliemae’s makes caramels by hand using traditional ingredients, with a twist. I tried their signature Salt Caramels and they were the perfect consistency, I was able to take a bite yet they weren’t sticky. If you are a caramel lover like me, that last sentence will make perfect sense. The unexpected comes from the flakes of salt that are on top. They add a savory element to a very buttery and sweet caramel, which I loved!
Ellen, of Helliemae’s, perfected the recipe in her own Denver kitchen with a friend, and uses local ingredients whenever possible. Helliemae’s can be purchased from local shops or online ($18 / half pound box) from their website…I am so tempted to try their newest flavor Coffee Caramels!
Caramels are a great alternative to chocolate for Valentine’s Day, or if you’re looking to send someone a unique gift. Also, we’re not done with Helliemae’s yet, look for an upcoming interview with Ellen right here on Sugar Loco!
