This year we're mixing things up a bit, with categories both for traditional caramel candies and non-traditional uses of caramel -- think caramel sauce, pudding, ice cream, cookies, cupcakes, even savory foods spiked with our favorite flavor. The more creative the better, as far as we're concerned.
Participants must provide 250 wrapped, labeled samples; and your creations must be made in a commercial kitchen.
Deadline for entering: Tuesday, January 31. Email Amy Silverman at firstname.lastname@example.org to enter or with any questions.
