Oat Gouda Caramel Summer Snack Recipe
Last weekend while visiting our local grocery store we made a quick stop at the cheese counter. My husband rarely cooks but it’s magical when he treats our family to his grandfather’s Italian recipes. He grew up cooking with him and is just starting to share those treasured recipes with our oldest daughter. We were at the cheese counter purchasing his favorite parmesan when the attendant offered my daughters and I a snack sample. The Oat Gouda Caramel Summer Snack was incredible. So incredible that we purchased all the ingredients on the spot so we could recreate the snack at home to serve before my husband’s homemade Italian sauce with meatballs and lasagna.
Oat Gouda Caramel Summer Snack recipe ingredients
- oatcakes like Effies Homemade Tea Biscuits (affiliate link)
- gouda cheese
- salted bourbon caramel like Fat Toad Farm Classic Caramel Jar (affiliate link)
We’ve never had oatcakes in our home before but are new fans. The lightly sweetened cracker is great on its own or perfect for layering like in the Oat Gouda Caramel Summer Snack.
Place a small piece of gouda atop each cracker.
Drizzle with salted bourbon caramel. The Fat Toad Farm Caramel Salted Bourbon we used is made with few ingredients and is also perfect drizzled on ice cream, paired with cheese and stirred into coffee, hot chocolate and tea. The salted bourbon caramel is also known as cajeta, a traditional Mexican confection, similar to dulce de leche.
Serve your Oat Gouda Caramel Summer Snacks with a favorite summer drink for an afternoon snack or as an appetizer before a homemade Italian meal.
