October is National Caramel Month! I’ve got a dozen awesome caramel treats for all the caramel lovers of the world. We’ve got cheesecake, cookies, cocktails, and so much more. Let’s get into it.
My husband is more of a caramel person than a chocolate person. I love caramel as well, so we’ve got some truly awesome caramel treats to share with you today. Twelve to be exact.
Caramel Butterscotch Muffins have been a favorite on my site for years. Your favorite caramel sauce is drizzled over muffin batter before baking for an extra hit of sweetness.
Caramel Toffee Cheesecake can be made with store-bought caramel along with crushed toffee bits to heighten a creamy cheesecake and cover any flaws.
Better than Sex Cupcakes are soaked in sweetened condensed milk and caramel sauce. They totally live up to their name.
This Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake is perfect for a month that celebrates both caramel and pumpkin. We’re making our own caramel sauce here, as well.
Salted Caramel Pudding is semi-homemade and so delish. A buttery chocolate crumb crust is topped with homemade caramel pudding, but you can use store-bought caramel sauce and whipped cream for the next layers.
Completely Caramel Cupcakes are caramely in three ways. The cake has a deeply caramely flavor from plenty of brown sugar, and they’re also filled with homemade caramel sauce and a caramel frosting.
I love these Caramel Swirl Cheesecake Bars. They’ve got a crisp shortbread crust, a creamy cheesecake layer, and a generous swirl of creamy caramel sauce.
Caramel-Stuffed Apple Cider Cookies are crisp on the edges, chewy on the inside with a distinct apple tartness and a whole chewy caramel stuffed inside.
The photos of these Caramel-Studded Snickerdoodles are frankly embarrassing, but the cookies themselves are totally awesome. Check the chocolate chip section of your store to see if they have caramel bits to mix in.
Salted Caramel White Russians are dangerously drinkable. Use caramel coffee syrup to make this classic cocktail a little bit extra.
Millionaire Shortbread has all the good stuff. Buttery shortbread, a thick layer of caramel, and a chocolate ganache topping. I love it all.
Caramel Croissant Bread Pudding is easy enough to make on a weeknight. We make a simple caramel custard mixture, pour it over torn, stale croissants, and bake it until puffed and golden.
I hope you’ve found a caramel treat you love here, friends. Be sure to share your photos on Instagram and hashtag them #awesomeon20. Stay sweet. Stay awesome.
