A chewy salted caramel is poured over roasted pecans then topped with a thin layer of rich chocolate. These are what you make when you love someone.
There’s a chain of chocolate stores in Canada called Purdy’s. Everything was going great in my life, I’d stop by once in a while for a salted caramel truffle, and I was happy. And then one day my cousin was with me at the mall, and she told me I HAD to try the Sweet Georgia Browns. I think she actually handed me a two pack and sent me on my way.
I don’t know that I’ll ever completely forgive her for that. They were hands down, the best chocolate I’d ever eaten. Smooth and chewy caramel with a pile of salty roasted pecans and a layer of creamy milk chocolate. They were like biting into heaven.
Like any normal person, I entered the addiction phase. I had to have them, and then I ate too many of them, and then I felt guilty because I’d eaten so many of them. It was a vicious cycle that took me a while to beat. And now, now I was finally ready to make them myself safe in the knowledge that I could be responsible in my consumption of them. Only I wasn’t, and now I can’t make them again until I have a really good reason AND they won’t be living in my house, because I’m weak and I can’t stop myself.
