One of my favourite things right now is the Dark Chocolate Caramel from Kakawa in Darlinghurst. Take the paper wrapper, give it a ballerina-like untwist, sink it into your mouth and chew (and chew and chew). Anyone afraid of the bitter bite of dark choc needn’t worry, as the caramel sweetens the jolt, making it dangerously easy to transform a pile of sweets into a trail of crinkled paper husks.
If you get to pick some up from Kakawa, make sure to try the Caramelised Raspberry Praline, which is one of the new additions to the cocoa line-up at the chocolatier, and possibly my second-favourite thing right now.

Mmmmm … caramel. And these ones sound amazing.
That does sound so yum. They remind me, visually, of Jamican ‘Bus me Jaw’ candy (http://sams247.net/p27/BUSTA-(BUS-ME-JAW)/product_info.html?osCsid=4mfpkreabqd7d1drkd9d0go9m4)
Literally translated it meant ‘break my jaw’ as they are made from molasses and are a serious contender for breaking your teeth! But oh so yummy…
Those caramels sound super goooddd 🙂
I may need to pay them a visit 😛
Thanks for all the comments! Enjoy & I hope no one breaks their jaw, as is the case with the Jamaican candy equivalent (thanks for the nice anecdote, S!).
