One evening, before I found out I was pregnant, I had a strong craving for soft caramels. I had pinned a few recipes on Pinterest that I really wanted to try, but until then I hadn't tried any of them. I thought I would wait until I got a candy thermometer. The last time I tried to make any type of candy (before this time I'm talking about now) it didn't turn out so hot either...but at least it stuck together instead of this stuff which stayed runny.
Anyway, it's been so long now I don't remember exactly what recipe I tried to use, but I do know that I really should've waited until I got a candy thermometer. Oh well. The 'soft caramel' experiment didn't go completely to waste. I scooped it into a bowl and dipped pretzels in it. That actually turned out pretty tasty.
I originally started out wanting to try and make soft caramels because I remembered these DELICIOUS caramels that a friend of the family would give to us each year at Christmas time. I really miss them. I wish I had her recipe or had learned from her how to make them. They were to-die-for!!! Anyway, these didn't turn out really good, but I'd eventually like to try another shot at making soft caramels.
Have you tried making Soft Caramels?
