Chocolate Covered Caramels
These caramels were fantastic. I have tried twice before to make caramels at home and failed miserably (with a different recipe). This came out great the first time. I did dip them in the milk chocolate (without the butter) and sprinkled them with sea salt. They were so delicious. I found that putting them top down into the melted chocolate, lifting them out and then flipping them onto the waxed paper after shaking off some of the chocolate was the easiest way to dip them. I also mixed some silver and gold luster dust from the cake decorating store into the sea salt to give it a silver or gold look on top of the chocolate. They turned out really beautiful and I will be giving them for gifts. I look forward to also mixing powdered food coloring in with the luster dust and sea salt for other colors but I haven't done it yet. Great recipe that I will use again and again. UPDATE: I used a 24 cavity silicone Christmas Tree mold (Wilton's I think) for my second batch. It was so easy to pop them out of the buttered molds when they had set up. I will be doing this exclusively from now on. i plan to dip them in chocolate and put the salt arranged like garland. Can't wait.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips
I have made this twice, once for a Memorial Day picnic and then for my daughter's first birthday party picnic. Both times I got many compliments and many people asking for my recipe. I made it once as the recipe states but without the preserves and then once replacing the raspberries with blueberries also without the preserves. Outstanding! Is becoming a staple for all of our family gatherings.
