Dallas Caramel Company Takes A Prize At International Chocolate Salon

Fantastic news this week from a player in the Dallas chocolate scene, and if you haven’t tasted the turtles from the Dallas Caramel Company you are certainly missing out. The big news is that Rain McDermott, owner and chef at the local caramel company, won the bronze medal in the International Chocolate Salon in San Francisco for her Chai Caramel.

Chef McDermott makes 12 different flavors of caramel including her award winning Chai, Sea Salt, Orange, Cinnamon, Coconut, Espresso, Chipotle, Amaretto, Drunken Nut (Texas Whiskey & Texas Pecans), Pumpkin, Bacon and Traditional Caramel. Many of the flavors are inspired by Dallas. She also makes three different types of turtles, most of which are gluten free. The Armadillo is layered chocolate, pecans and caramel, the Tumbleweed is swirled caramel and nuts, and the Horned Toad is a gnarly mix of chocolate, caramel and pecans and tastes different than the Armadillo.

We asked the chef how you make caramel and she said, “It’s sugar, cream and butter and let them cook and do their magic. It’s a delicious product that doesn’t stick to your teeth”.


Dallas Caramel Company previously won the People’s Choice Award at the Chocolate Festival in Grapevine.
