Not every dessert time needs to be a grand excursion. Here I am, sitting on my couch, when suddenly I’m whisked away to a tropical island full of treats. I mean, not exactly, but the sun is shining and I have a bowl full of coconut milk caramels, so that’s close enough for now.
I discovered Cocomel’s when they were gifted to me as part of an organic foods gift basket, but now you can buy them online or at a specialty grocery store (I get mine at Whole Foods). I was an instant fan. They are smooth, buttery, with just the subtlest hint of coconut flavor and not overly sugary. I love them. Plus they’re organic, which basically means that they’re good for you. I love them. They come in a few flavors, each using minimal ingredients. Did I mention that I love them?
