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! :)
