Shotwell Candy Co.
Shotwell Candy Co. started as an effort for me to create a great holiday gift for friends and family in 2012. After researching various caramel-making methods and dozens of recipes, I landed on what I thought would make the absolute best caramel (both in terms of flavor and texture) that could be made. I then set out to perfect the recipe over a period of weeks working with different ingredient types (I tried 12 different butters alone) and cooking to different temperatures until I finally landed on what I thought was a great caramel. After enough people told me I should “sell these caramels” I decided to launch Shotwell Candy Co. out of my family's kitchen.
