This week’s Baked Sunday Mornings challenge is for Soft Candy Caramels. I was so excited to make this recipe because I’ve been a bit obsessed with salted caramel lately. We’ve made several different caramel sauces but never candies.
The recipe didn’t specify how long it would take for the caramel to come back up to temperature after adding the milk and cream but I read all the notes left by my fellow Bakers – all of whom said it took a long time. So, we cooked the caramel for 20 minutes but it never did come back up to 240 degrees. We were worried about burning it, so we poured the caramel into the pan and I sprinkled half of it with Snowflake Salt.
Unfortunately, it resulted in delicious, but very soft caramels even after letting them sit overnight. So I popped them in the refrigerator for a bit and that helped. I cut and wrapped about half of the caramel and have half left to swirl into brownies or ice cream.
These caramels have wonderful texture and flavor and I’m pleased with the results for first-timers, but I would like to try again.
