I don't know who to thank...
Martha for the recipe
or Des for telling me about them.
I am completely addicted to these
They are pretty easy to make,
you do have to be patient and
let them get to the correct temp.
You need a candy thermometer, definitely.
My first batch was too soft,
soft and delicious,
it was a gingerbread caramel sauce,
not exactly what I wanted.
Well, I wanted to drink it,
This batch is still a little on the soft side,
but totally wrapable and divine.
The recipe makes a bunch.
I think I got 170 caramels out of the pan.
I've eaten 4 this morning,
just to make sure they are holding up.
Getting treats ready.
Need to put some finishing touches on these.
Another great gingerbread project is
this fun kit from
Cost Plus World Market.
But I'm making
Ninja sugar cookies
for Cub Scouts to decorate.
Nothing like having sugared-up Scouts.
For a brief moment, I thought I should decorate a ninja in a Boy Scout Shirt for each boy.
that moment passed pretty quick.
What are you
working on today?
