From chocolate shops to restaurants, artisanal flavored caramel is all the rage. Enjoy its panache at home with this delectable sauce. Enhanced with lavender and fleur de sel, it's delicious over cakes, ice cream, and other desserts. Before giving it as a gift, dress up the jar with lavender sprigs to hint at the unexpected floral essence within.
