salty and sweet recipes

From salty and sweet desserts to sweet salty eats,

there is something for everyone on this list!

It’s no secret this is my favorite flavor combo… I’m all about this sweet and salty at the same time. 

I remember the first time I put my all-time two favorites together, potato chips, and mixed them with chocolate chip cookies! Amazing, and my kids still talk about them, about how great they are, and what unexpected deliciousness they are together.

Salt in sweet recipes balances the sweetness to give it a more complex flavor, that is why things like salted caramels have become so popular recently, but salty sweets have been around since combining hot dogs and cornbread…. corn dogs have been around quite a while, and so has caramel corn to dipping your fries into your shake (preferable chocolate) Nowadays you’ll see items like salted chocolate, chicken, and waffles on regular menus.

Think of the classic PBJ, its’ salty and sweet and a winner every time!

If you love peanut butter and jelly be sure to give my PBJ Cupcakes a try!
