I just opened a new jar of salted caramel.
Well… technically I’m lying. I opened it last night. Late last night.
Not like that was obvious with the full inch missing from the top.
What should I make with it? What should I do? What would you make? Hit me with your best shot.

simply over ice cream is ideal; if you can mix it in something with ganache, you’d cure my PMS.
I have an insane pretzel, ganache and caramel tart on my blog. the absolute cure for PMS!
Salted caramel blondies!
salted caramel pudding! salted caramel creme brulee!
this sounds like heaven for the mouth!
I wonder if you could use it to make millionaire’s shortbread.
What about a caramel apple crisp? Or incorporating it into mini cheesecakes somehow?
I just made caramel-filled peanut butter cupcakes with white chocolate buttercream and a caramel drizzle with a similar product. YUM!
feel free to fed-ex those to me now. wow.
After you send Tiffany some, I’ll take some.
I’ll take some as well, and the recipe!!
OMG yes please! They sound amazing!
I’d just eat it with a spoon.
use it to make your mouth happy ;)
you’re too funny1 and I can’t believe I still haven’t tried that and I’m a TJS addict! :)
Brownies! Yes…salted caramel brownies served with vanilla ice cream! You can do it, Jessica! ;-)
Banana whoopie pies with salted caramel filling!
i like this idea.
Ditto on the spoon. Actually ditch the spoon, fingers work fine.
Recreate Ben & Jerry’s new ice cream flavor (http://www.benjerry.com/flavors/feature/late-night-snack/), I dare you to make chocolate covered potato chip balls. If ever there was a person to complete this fantasy for me .. you’re it.
I totally agree- she should do this!
Chocolate covered potato chips are one of my specialties at Christmas!
This is exactly what I was going to say Jessica should do too! I LOVE that ice cream!!!!!
You could make coconut caramel bars
Dark chocolate brownies, then swirl the carmel throughout them, bake them and then drizzle it on top :)
This recipe starts with butter and sugar but you could easily skip straight ahead to burning pre-made caramel and go from there.
welp id eat it by the spoonful :)
Drizzle it over your root beer float cupcakes…
This is one of those times when i wish we had a TJs near us! Yummmm salted caramel.
Have you ever tried the Triple Ginger Snaps from Trader Joe’s? They’re such good cookies on their own, but dipped in that caramel sauce they’re like heaven. If you don’t have cookies, a spoon will do. :)
I actually bought this stuff because I saw it on your blog! :) I am TOTALLY OBSESSED! First, I didn’t have any ice cream, so I ate it with an apple. When the apple ran out, I used my finger. Now, I usually just drizzle it over vanilla ice cream (I go with the light ice cream so I can use more caramel sauce…). I would love, love, LOVE some salted caramel ice cream, though.
Last time I was at TJ’s I actually found salted caramel ice cream. Well, actually it’s chocolate ice cream with the salted caramel swirled in. It. Is. To. Die. For.
Salted caramel bacon brownies. Sounds heavenly, right?
Now, I admit, I’ve never tried these, but they sound RIGHT up your alley:
http://savour-fare.com/2010/03/17/bacon-salted-caramel-brownies/ I imagine you could make substitutions that would mean you can use pre-made caramel.
Okay, so I am not a food photographer by any means so don’t judge from my picture, but these Praline Crumb Caramel Cheesecake bars were AMAZING. Seriously. They are possibly worth gaining 5 pounds…
Brownies, duh! :) or try your hand at salted caramel macarons with chicolate ganache filling. Mmm.
Peanut butter-bacon-caramel corn?
You should make some Alfajores: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfajor
Yes traditionally they use dulce del leche but i’m sure i’m sure it would be sweet enough :)
Please please make this!! I don’t think my jeans will fit if I make it!
peanut butter marble cake with salted caramel glaze! Saw it in cooking light long ago and it looked divine!
Chocolate-covered caramel buttercream frosting
so the first thing i thought of was caramel and shrimp! now, i dunno how this tastes…but http://www.closetcooking.com/2009/01/vietnamese-caramel-shrimp-tom-rim.html has a caramel shrimp recipe…and that sounds wonderful to me! :) plus it’s not an outright dessert! so it’s healthy, right?
I make a caramel that we just keep in a tub in the fridge to dip stuff into….apples, bananas, cookies, etc.
You could bake some chocolate thumbprint cookies with the caramel in the middle. Or sandwich caramel in between two cookies. Or bake brownies and glaze them with chocolate glaze, and top them with some caramel…..
Some kind of caramel apple cupcakes with an out-of-this world vanilla caramel icing!
I bought this sauce based on your recommendation. I topped brownies with it. Yum!
But replace the dulce de leche with salted caramel!
You should “fancy” these up!
I have a really easy recipe.
1. Twist top off.
2. Dip finger in.
3. Lick finger.
Banoffee Pie, yummmmm :)
Salted caramel cheesecake brownies. With caramel whipped cream.
don’t drop it all over the floor and have it shatter. that’s what’s NOT to do. That’s what I did with the last jar of TJ’s caramel sauce about a week ago…sticky, glass shards everywhere, I even linked to you and your Pyrex explosion in that post b/c it was SUCH a mess.
I am getting a flashback just looking at that jar of caramel. lol.
I’ve been having it over waffles with sliced bananas. So Good!
I just found this recipe yesterday:http://www.mybakingaddiction.com/sweet-and-salty-brownies/
You could use it for the middle caramel layer! Drool.
Salted Caramel Banana pudding!!! Except all Jessica-fied. I’ve been wanting to try this: http://www.ifood.tv/recipe/anne-thornton-s-salted-caramel-banana-pudding-pie
Or maybe in a sticky sauce for Chicken wings??
caramel is good on its own, but if you must, how about caramel cream puffs?
Apple pecan caramel cookie bars. I’ve never seen it or eaten it, but those things go soooooo well together, I can taste it now. AND I WANT SOME.
Brownies! Brownies! Brownies! Brownies!
Something with bacon. Like this:
My vote is for any dessert!!! Maybe fill a cupcake with it??
thats what i plan on using mine forrrrr :)
omg, I’d die. That looks soooo bomb!
Salted Caramel Baked Donuts…then ship them to me in Oregon to taste test of course
