New Year Salted Caramels (Sorry, Diet)
I tried my hand at candy-making this holiday season (trust me, I’m MUCH better at regular cooking…baking is too precise with measurements, candy is too precise with temperatures. Give me “a lil’ of this and a lil’ of that, and I’m good!). I made saltine toffee and beer candy for my coworkers, and Heather Davis mentioned she loved salted caramels. Being the “foodie” that I am, I’m all over the salty/sweet combo’s lately….so I decided to make these, and brought BUCKETS in for the office.
Yes, that is the actual picture of the ones I made. I’m so proud of them!!! They truly look lovely, and taste AMAZING.
Alas, I can’t claim fame to the recipe. I got it online. Just be sure you follow directions exactly…with candy-making, you absolutely MUST get to the right temperature for things to turn out right. When it says 257 degrees, it means it. Trust me….my trials will help your errors.
OH! P.S. This is a pic of the New Year’s Eve meal I made for myself that I spoke of in a previous post. It was every bit as delicious as it looks. Sorry, vegetarians…but this girl can COOK!
