deux sucettes au caramel

Bonjour

Can one as an alternative to "deux sucettes au caramel" write "deux sucettes caramélisées"? This is in line with phrases like "porc salé" and "bouillon aromatisé".

Or, does "deux sucettes au caramel" imply lollipops that contain pieces of caramel compared to "deux sucettes caramélisées" that implies lollipops with a caramel flavour?

Au caramel and caramélisé are not synonymous. The first one refers to something made with caramel and the second one to something caramelized.  There's a subtle difference.
