I was driving down the street, the leaves were turning colors and it made me think of fall and caramel because I was making my salted caramel chocolate chip cookies. I know it sounds cheesy, but I’m not kidding.
I always use Fat Toad Farm goat’s milk caramel for the cookies, and I’d been wanting to reach out to tell them how much I love their product and company. That turned into a conversation with Calley, the owner, afterwhich, we decided to collaborate.
Calley Hastings is the co-owner of Fat Toad Farm Caramel; a small family-owned business located in the hills of Central Vermont. They have been producing hand crafted award-winning goat’s milk caramel for the past 13 years.
Fat Toad Farm Caramel is created in Brookfield, Vermont from fresh, locally sourced goat’s milk and simple, all-natural ingredients.
Their caramel sauces are based on the Mexican confection cajeta and are meticulously hand-stirred to velvety perfection. The family run business has spent the last decade mastering goat’s milk caramel making, resulting in a rich and creamy, not-too-sweet caramel that delivers an irresistibly complex flavor.
I am incredibly proud and impressed at how quickly we were able to get this product launch together. It was important to us to be able to get it in your hands before the holidays. We did all the ideas, taste testing, label designs, printing, photography, production all in less than two months…..and all virtually! We both run separate businesses and this was one of a million projects, so just WOW!
I stumbled upon this amazing caramel when I was in Seattle 10 years ago. I was walking down the street outside of Pike Place Market and there was a specialty food store giving out samples of pretzels dipped in caramel sauce. I tried the sample and it was SO good! I bought my first jar of caramel there, and the rest is history.
When we were developing this collaboration flavor, I knew it had to be salty and sweet because that is one of my fave combinations!
I’m known for my salted caramel chocolate chip cookies, so it was the perfect fit!
If you’re feeling up for a night of caramel fun, host your own little tasting event! Fat Toad Farm has plenty of fun flavors that you can buy as a sampler pack and host your very own caramel tasting. Below are all of the flavors you can choose from:
- Salted Bourbon
- Vanilla Bean
- Vermont Maple
- Cold Brew Coffee
- Spicy Dark Chocolate
- Irish Whiskey Cream
Baking with their caramel is one of my favorite things to do which is why I was so excited to feature a SweetPhi recipe (salted caramel chocolate chip cookies) on a recipe card that is included when you purchase the caramel.
I’ve already used their caramel sauce in recipes in the past (listed below):
- Mexican hot chocolate caramel cookies
- Mini pumpkin muffins with sour cream and caramel frosting
- Banana caramel swirl cake
- Caramel spiced pecans
- One bowl salted caramel blondies
- Bourbon salted caramel chocolate chip cookies
And I have plans for more great caramel recipes coming soon to the blog (hello caramel pretzel bites and chocolate turtle layer cake <- coming next week!)
If you’re not in the mood for baking, there are plenty of ways to use this caramel that you may not have thought of:
- On top of a slice of cheese (think goat cheese!)
- With an apple
- In or on scones
- Ice cream topping
- Mixed into coffee <- personal fave
- As a pretzel dip
I’m so thrilled to get to share this product launch with you. There is a limited quantity of the Fat Toad Farm/SweetPhi caramel being made, so grab yours while you can!
To get it in time for the holidays, be sure to place your orders before December 11th!
