Why Himalayan Salt? Usually all one has to do to discover why Himalayan Salt makes exceptional salty and sweet treat is to take a taste of the salt.

Instead is possesses a subtle yet rich salt flavor which perfectly accents sweet foods, blending a unique salty flavor with the treat.

Baked Treats
Sweet & Salty Holiday Dessert IdeasWe will start with some really simple ways to transform ordinary baked sweets into a “sweet and salty” sensation! One of the most popular salty and sweet combinations involves chocolate and salt, which can be easily produced by simply sprinkling coarse grain pink salt over brownies, chocolate cake or chocolate cookies. If you would like to add extra Holiday theme flavors, try crushing candy canes and sprinkling a few of the crushed candy pieces, dark chocolate chips or baking discs, and/or caramels around with the salt crystals. For best results sprinkle the salt and candy toppings onto the freshly baked goods before they cool, to allow the salt flavor to blend better with the chocolate.
