Oat Gouda Caramel Summer Snack Recipe

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.

These easy oat gouda caramel summer snacks are the easiest to make and perfect for summer entertaining!

Oat Gouda Caramel Summer Snack recipe ingredients

Oatcakes, gouda and salted bourbon caramel are excellent paired together for oat gouda caramel summer snacks!

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.

Stack gouda cheese on oatcakes for the perfect summer snack.

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.

These Oat Gouda Caramel Summer Snacks are delicious and so easy to make.

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.

Serve Oat Gouda Caramel Summer Snacks at your next party!

  1. That looks like an amazing snag. It would’ve been a great appetizer for Memorial Day, but I definitely have more parties coming up and I know people would love this.

  2. This recipe looks amazing. I’m always looking for great snack ideas. I’ll be giving this one a try for sure.

  3. Gouda cheese and salted bourbon caramel together is such a great idea! The perfect summer fun appetizer for any event. I would eat them alone, too.

  4. What an interesting combination. I love gouda, and I’ll have to give this a try. I eat cheese and crackers and fruit all the time, so this sounds like it would work.
