Salted Bourbon Caramel Almonds.jpg

Ingredients:
1 lb of whole roasted almonds (unsalted)
1 8 oz jar of Fat Toad Farm Salted Bourbon Caramel (or your favorite flavor!)
1 Tablespoon of sea salt

Directions:
Preheat oven to 325. In a medium bowl, use a spoon to mix a little over half of the jar of caramel (or 4 oz) in with the almonds until they are evenly covered. Sprinkle in the salt while mixing. Spread almonds evenly on parchment paper and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes stirring every 5 minutes. Watch closely so that the caramel gets crispy but does not burn.  Let cool and remove from parchment paper. Serve as a delicious snack for the Super Bowl.

We’ve found our new favorite summer recipe! The Strawberry Almond Flour Cake adapted from King Arthur Flour. The best part of this cake is that you can use caramel two ways. Make homemade whipped cream using caramel as a sweetener then drizzle caramel on top of the cake before serving. Follow the original recipe and then make our whipped cream recipe below. Note if you want a two layer cake as shown in the photo double the King Arthur recipe.

Ingredients

2 cups heavy cream

1/4 cup Fat Toad Farm goat’s milk caramel

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a stand-up mixer whip heavy cream until soft peaks form. Add caramel and vanilla and whip for 10 more seconds until fully incorporated. Spread whipped cream on first layer of cake. Place second cake on top and spread on top layer. Top with fresh berries and drizzle with caramel.
