the twelve treats of Christmas: day 4

On the fourth day of Christmas, orenji catering made for me...

Every year we take a trip to Hawai'i to visit some dear friends. The fourth treat of Christmas 2007 is inspired by the flavors and ingredients we enjoy while on those trips: namely, coconut and macadamia nuts.
We start our gourmet popcorn with these ingredients... gently toasting the coconut until it reaches a lovely golden brown, caramelizing the natural sugars in the tender white flesh.

We then take fresh macadamia nuts, and after lightly salting them, roast them in the oven.
These ingredients are combined with our own caramel corn, and tossed with the finest Belgian milk chocolate. The end result, a gourmet macadamia nut, toasted coconut, and milk chocolate caramel corn!
It is a delicious snack, that once you start eating, it's nearly impossible to stop! More gourmet popcorn reviews to come during the 12 treats of Christmas 2007... but will it be tomorrow? You'll have to check back to find out!
