Chewy Caramel

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
Pretty good tasting caramel. I don't really know what I'm doing when it comes to caramel, I have had so many disasters in the past. I used this recipe to cover apples and it worked wonderfully, it didnt drip off the sides. I think it helps if your apples are cool, and you can hold and twirl them patiently as the caramel cools to the apple before setting it down. This recipe produced twice as much caramel as i needed (covered 9 small/medium apples, AND I had enough to pour a thin layer into a 9x9 inch pan) which brings me to another comment... I thought it turned out to be a good chewiness for candy, not too soft. I followed the temp. suggestion, maybe a little lower 225-230, but i dont know 1. how long it took me to get there- a while 20 minutes maybe because i was being tentative, 2. how accurate my candy thermometer is, 3. If my altitude 3400 ft affects this process... But I was happy with the result
