Back into the jar of French salted caramel we delve. I was staring at the jar one morning, day dreaming about what to do with it when my one-track mind turned to chocolate. The recipe must involve chocolate and there must be a lot of salted caramel.
I wanted something that you could bite into and have salted caramel drip from your lips. It had to be heavenly and chocolate salted caramel thumbprints fitted the bill in my book.
To be heavenly they couldn’t be too naughty. They started off as a healthy biscuit with wholemeal flour and coconut sugar. I figured they could balance out the deliciously sugary golden salted caramel oozing from the top of each biscuit.
A drizzle of melted dark chocolate and a sprinkle of sea salt sealed the deal. I could finally answer ‘yes’ when Will asked me if there was anything sweet for dessert after dinner that night. They obviously tasted sinfully delicious because he would be the first to notice if they tasted ‘healthy.’
If you wanted a plain chocolate biscuit without too much guilt these would still be lovely without the salted caramel but I would add a teaspoon of cinnamon because it’s my favourite and chocolate and cinnamon are best friends and you shouldn’t keep best friends apart. Oh dear I am a bit nutty today. I think I should probably go and take a nap until Ollie wakes up. Enjoy!
