SMS: Chocolate Cream Caramels.....


Sorry for the late post, I actually made these on Saturday but an invitation for breakfast and a movie, Avatar, got in the way of cutting and wrapping.  I have made caramels for years and this was a nice change of flavor, never thought of making chocolate caramels. 


These were very good but I prefer a softer caramel; I will make them again but next time cook them a few degrees lower.  The candy cut easily and tasted great! This was perfect timing, I just got my order for cellophane wrappers and had plenty (2000), LOL. 


On another note, I am happy to see the holidays are over, something was lacking this year; can't put my finger ont it but it just didn't seem like Christmas.  Maybe I was baking and cooking for clients and not enough for me, I had loftly expectations of all the holiday goodies I wanted to make.  This year I will cut off client baking at the beginning of December.

Your caramels look so pretty in the cellophane wrappers. I took the easy (aka lazy) way out and put them in paper cups. I loved these caramels. They weren't overly sweet which I liked.

Your caramels look great! I passed on this one. I have to start cutting back on the amount of baking (and eating) I have been doing.

Gorgeous caramels - you cut them so straight and perfect! I'm really impressed that you wrapped each and every one individually, I just wasn't that motivated :)

Hi Robin!

I just wanted to stop by, say hello, and see how you're doing. I'm wishing you a very happy New Year filled with much love and good health (along with lots of yummy treats)!

Your caramels look scrumptious- great job! I'm glad SMS is back in action, and I can’t wait to enjoy another fun, fabulous year of baking and blogging together in 2010! Have a great weekend and I really hope to talk to you soon!
