Salted caramel has arrived on this planet as of late and the whole world is going a little bit wild for it – and understandably so. 

It's the perfect mix of sweet and salty – allowing us to pour our Maltesers into our popcorn at the cinema without fear of being judged.

But with this great discovery, we've found ourselves thinking: what else have we been missing out on?

These 14 my friends, these 14 are the answers to all of the questions you could possibly have.

1. Salted chocolate chip cookies

Basically the normal chocolate chip cookies that you made as a kid, except with chunky pieces of sea salt added to ignite some flavour. Full recipe here.
