A Sandwich For the Ages: Apple, Brie, Prosciutto & Caramel Panini

This beast has everything you could ever want in a sandwich – tart apples, creamy brie from Blythedale Farm in Corinth, VT, savory prosciutto & just a little caramel sweetness to bring it all together on fresh slices of ciabatta from our favorite local bakery, Red Hen Baking Co. in Middlesex, VT.

The recipe is pretty straight forward: Layer brie, apples & prosciutto on a piece your favorite bread, spread Fat Toad Farm Goat’s Milk Caramel on a second piece of said favorite bread , schmush together and grill on each side until warm and toasty.  Enjoy!

Chocolate Pudding with Caramel & Vermont Creamery Creme Fraiche

Okay, hold on to your hats, I think this is HANDS DOWN the best dessert we’ve ever invented.  Seriously, we’re lucky any of this yummy stuff lasted long enough to photograph it.   After so many servings my stomach is thoroughly disgusted with my total lack of will power and self-control, but my taste buds are eternally grateful.   MAN ALIVE!  This is some tasty business.

Here’s how we did it:

1.  Follow THIS recipe for Best Chocolate Pudding by Smitten Kitchen - it truly is divine.

2. Fill a heart-stoppingly adorable pudding cup half way with said divine chocolate pudding.

3. Pour a layer of your favorite flavor of Fat Toad Farm Goat’s Milk Caramel on top of the pudding layer, use as much as you like, I used about 2 tablespoons of our Original Caramel (my favorite always and forever).

4.  Dollop a final layer of Vermont Creamery Creme Fraiche on top and then stand back and admire your handiwork.

5.  If you’re feeling really crazy, stab it with a pretzel stick for a little savory kick.

6. Get a spoon and be prepared to die of happiness!

Note: The layering is a little easier and more photogenic when all the ingredients are chilled.
