I'm sorry you didn't have the turkey spoon success you wanted, Melissa. You bring up a good point about microwaves - all microwave times and temps will probably vary. (My microwave is 15 years old, so it's not as efficient.) Test one caramel first before doing them all. You just need them softened, not liquid. As far as the sanding sugar, I got mine at Hobby Lobby in the baking section and it's pretty fine.

I just got finished making these, and let me tell you--they don't look like the picture. :o( I was patient and took my time, but there are a couple of things to be aware of if you're going to try these. 1.) I used the little caramel cubes, and after ten seconds in the microwave, they became pretty liquidy, not the clay-like texture in the pictures. Make sure your caramel is completely cooled (refrigerate for a minute or two) before continuing. 2.) I don't know where to find the super fine crystal sugar shown here, but my sugar crystals were much...chunkier, and didn't cover the chocolate as well. All in all, great idea. I just didn't have the same results.
