What is caramel and what pairs well with it?

Caramel is a rich, sweet, and slightly sticky sauce or candy made from heating sugar until it melts and caramelizes. It is commonly used as a topping or filling for desserts such as cakes, ice cream, and pastries, and can also be used in savory dishes to add a sweet and nutty flavor.

Caramel pairs well with a variety of flavors, including chocolate, vanilla, nuts, fruits like apples and pears, and even savory ingredients like bacon or sea salt. Some popular desserts that feature caramel include caramel apples, caramel popcorn, flan, and crème brûlée. In savory dishes, caramel can be used to add sweetness and depth of flavor to sauces or glazes for meats or vegetables.
