This week’s featured link is Trappistine Creamy Caramels. This candy making operation is the main means of support for the monastic community of 30 Trappistine nuns of Our Lady of the Mississippi Abbey located in Dubuque, Iowa. All of their candies are handmade with tender loving care from the finest ingredients. In 2007, their sweet treats were voted “Best Heavenly Bites” by Reader’s Digest magazine.
For the life of me, I can not remember where or how I heard of this website, but I have been ordering caramels, mints and truffles from these nuns for almost 10 years now. Every time I place an order for a gift to give to someone else, I have to buy some for myself as well. You know, “one for you, one (or two) for me”. Their caramels (vanilla or chocolate) are so incredibly rich and creamy, they are truly heavenly. Their truffles are beautiful, hand-decorated works of art and their mints are truly melt-in-your-mouth delicious.
