Before getting to the recipe let me give you a little warning. Making caramels is not for the faint of heart. It isn’t hard, but it can be a little time consuming. And it is most definitely not the time to be catching up on the latest celebrity gossip. Making caramels requires your undivided attention, otherwise you will end up with a very sad and burnt batch of caramels.
Now that I gave you that little tip, on to the recipe.
Here’s another little tip for those of you who don’t have a candy thermometer or, like me, it breaks halfway through your caramel making. Boo. You can know the caramel is at the right temperature using just a bowl of ice water. Drop a spoonful of the syrup into the bowl of very cold and use your fingers to gather the cooled syrup into a ball. If it is the right temperature, the syrup forms a ball while in the cold water, but flattens out once removed from the water.
