Like biting into a caramel-covered apple, only better! Our cider caramels marry crisp, fresh-apple flavor with warm notes of baked apple pie, creamy-rich caramel, and luxurious milk chocolate. And because our house-made apple syrup is produced just twice a year - in October and March - these caramels are often in limited supply and high demand. Don't miss your chance to taste a unique Vermont chocolate delicacy!
• Total piece count: 7
• Packaged in a clear gift sleeve
• Vermont-made with Citizen Cider and Happy Valley Orchard apples
• Also available in a 15-piece gift box
In 2012, when craft cider was just starting to emerge, we picked up a bottle of Citizen Cider Unified Press to see what all the fuss was about. After a few sips, we understood...and the gears were in motion to incorporate apple flavor into our chocolate caramels. The answer was to boil down apple pressings from Happy Valley Orchard (the same apples that go into Unified Press), and create our own apple syrup. We blended this syrup with our slow-cooked caramel, adding a splash of cider at the end, and coated it all in 34% milk chocolate. The fruitful collaboration between the good people of Citizen Cider, Happy Valley Orchard, and Lake Champlain Chocolates resulted in these outstanding confections that have been recognized as a 2016 Good Food Awards finalist and 2016 sofi™ Awards finalist.
