stickyWhat tastes better – caramel or vanilla?

I use caramel more than I use vanilla. I love the warm flavor of caramel. I hardly ever make vanilla whipped cream anymore – caramel whipped cream is incredible.

The desserts that we serve in the store – we top those with caramel whipped cream. Why? People love it and spend more money.

If your recipe calls for vanilla, substitute caramel. Most cookie recipes are fabulous when you use caramel flavor instead of vanilla.

Caramel frosting is incredible. Caramel complements fruit so well. Cakes and muffins that call for vanilla are delightful with caramel.
