8. Salted Pumpkin Caramels

Nothing says fall more than rich salted pumpkin caramels! According to the editors of Food52, “The earthiness of pumpkin, softened with cream, permeates each chewy bite, followed by a whisper of spice, and the delicate crunch of fleur de sel is a clever detail, offsetting the sweetness of the candy.” Nuff said.
