As someone who adores caramels and as someone who likes to make presents, I have pinned nearly every possible recipe for homemade caramel. All looked amazing and all seemed difficult for me to do.
Who owns a candy thermometer?
Then I came across a recipe for caramels from the microwave! And I knew I had a winner.
I learned a lot from making them, like when the recipe says to us a bowl three times bigger than your ingredients–do it. I have a scar to remind me but adding Baileys helped me to forget.
I also learned that freezing before cutting caramels is much better and having a glass of wine while wrapping them is even better.
I wrote about it here along with my thoughts on Gourmet Nut.
