IDDBA 2015: Part 3

At the IDDBA’s Dairy-Deli-Bake Seminar and Expo at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia earlier this month, we went beyond caramel apples and created a dessert display to showcase all of the uses for our Daffy Farms All Natural Baker’s Caramel. We filled, drizzled, dipped, and topped a variety of bakery and confectionery items!

We found this fantastic round shelf that not only has an urban vibe, it reinforces the round idea of a caramel apple. This display, full of handmade gourmet caramel apples made with our Daffy Apple Traditional Dipping Caramel, Daffy Apple Red Candy Dipping Caramel, and Daffy Farms All Natural Dipping Caramel, turned out to be quite picture-worthy, judging from how many folks stopped to snap a photo of it!

Dipping Things (Other than Apples) in Caramel!

Sure Daffy Farms caramels are great for dipping apples, but did you know they make fantastic dipping caramels for other desserts? Our candy chef did some experimenting with several other items, so we could really see if our caramel held up to the test. It did! And with delicious looking, delicious tasting, results!

All 1

We dipped giant marshmallows in both our Traditional Caramel and our All Natural Baker’s Caramel. Both caramels held up well. Then we coated them with milk, white, and dark chocolate, as well as chocolate mini gems, pecans, and crispy cereal.

We dipped pretzel rods in both caramels, and topped them with milk, white, and dark chocolate, pecans, carnival sprinkles, sandwich cookies, and crispy cereal.

All Pretzels 1

We dipped potato chips in both caramels, and topped them with milk, white, and dark chocolate, and pecans. Our candy chef even made bride and groom chips, which are adorable!

We made pecan clusters using both caramels, dark chocolate, and sea salt.

And last, but definitely not least, we dipped sandwich cookies fully and partially in both caramels and topped them with milk, white, and dark chocolate, and pecans. Venturing into the cookie realm, made us realize that almost any cookie in the grocery store aisle would work well with this application and suddenly become a homemade candy-like treat!

A Tale of Three Caramels

For over 60 years, Daffy Apple has been famous the caramel on our caramel apples.  Recently, though, we’ve been on a mission to fill a gap in the market for a cleaner label caramel.  What we found is that there are some different needs for different companies, wholesalers, and individual customers.  So we came up with three different caramels, Daffy Farms All Natural Baker’s Caramel, Daffy Farms All Natural Dipping Caramel, and Daffy Farms Dipping Caramel with Butter.  All three caramels are now available for purchase on the our website, as well as our Daffy Apple Traditional Daffy Apple Dipping Caramel and Daffy Apple Red Candy Dipping Caramel, and each has a slightly different usage and ingredient profile, so that hopefully we have a caramel to fit your specific needs!
