Chocolate Covered Caramels
I tried this recipe for the first time a few years ago. I had never made candy and this really built my confidence. Although I make many different candies now, I find it is the most requested of my goodies. It's all about temperature. I heat it up slowly (patience is the key) until a firm ball is formed when dropped in cold water. Sometimes I use a thermometer, but I still find the cold water test to be more reliable. I use a 9x13 and skip the butter. I also find that chilling it in the fridge before dipping it and again, immediately after makes it easier to work with. Then I drizzle with white chocolate just to add some contrast.
