Sweet and Spicy S'mores Featuring Basil Cayenne Caramel
August is Basil Cayenne Month and we've cooked up a limited edition batch of this fan favorite to celebrate the dog days of a hot, hot summer.
This sweet-and-heat treat is an unusual caramel concoction. Each bite starts caramelly sweet, then builds the heat to a pleasing, mouth-tingling zing. And, then, just when you need it, the cool refreshing taste of basil kicks in. An adventure for the palate, our Basil Cayenne is a wonderfully enticing flavor paradox. Try it in our recipe of the month or see some great gifting ideas. We guarantee this flavor will kick your August up a notch or two!
