Nevertheless, I needed to attempt to make salted caramels for my commitment to make them for next weekend. I think I pulled it off! First I mixed the water, light corn syrup and sugar to get their boil on:
(what the heck is with the sideways picture??)
Then, simmer the heavy cream, butter and salt.....
Next, wait....wait...wait...for the original mixture to turn "golden brown".
Finally! Then we join the two in holy matrimony, to be together until the end of time, to bubble and boil until they reach the magical temperature of 248 degrees.
Here is my Siamese twin, Rosanna. Yeah, that's right, I can make caramels and be a child caddy all at the same time. PRO.
Poor baby. She was having quite the day. She was definitely NOT sleepy in this picture. She was chipper, excited and ready to take on the day!
Aaaannnddd, it's done:
Yes, it's yummy :)
