{salted caramel budino}

I am a sucker for any dessert with caramel in it and one of my all time favorites is the caramel budino from Bottega Louie.  Last month's issue of Bon Appetit conveniently had a straight forward recipe for making caramel budino with cookie crust and I knew immediately that was the perfect dessert for our 26th birthday party.  You can see the original recipe I followed here.  I omitted the whipped cream topping and replaced it with edible gold foil stars.  I also opted to buy the Fluer de Sel Caramel sauce from Trader Joe's rather than make it from scratch in the interest of time.  I was able to make these all the night before and simply added some additional caramel sauce and the gold stars right before serving.
