Sugar Whipped Salty Caramel Rice Crispy Treats
Though Sugar Whipped baker/owner Mindy Haws claims cookies are her specialty—or at least they were when she started whipping up sweet treats at age six—in 2018, the salty caramel rice crispy treats she makes in her Boise bakery steal the show. Their perfect chewy consistency, caramel sweetness and rich notes of brown butter perfectly balance a punch of sugar with a hint of salt; and they're so sinfully delicious, you'd never suspect they're gluten free. Sweet-seekers can snag one of these individually wrapped delicacies at local coffee shops, restaurants and grocery stores (see sugarwhippedboise.com for a complete list of retailers and a menu filled with more desserts) or order them online for $28 a tray. Each tray holds at least two dozen treats, so if you want to share your newfound delight, you'll have plenty to both indulge in and give away.
