Chocolate Covered Caramels

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
These are great!! And make wonderful gifts. Wrap in freezer paper & put in a nice jar, candy dish, or tin. Also be sure you get to the right temp or you will get candies that are hard if to hot, or really chewy if to cool. And for those getting a grainy chocolate you can take out the butter altogether or use a 1/2 of food grade coco-butter (or 30% of your chocolate ratio) this makes for a wonderful chocolate experience too. Also keep your chocolate over a double boiler on the lowest heat possible, this will keep it at a dipping level. Instead of the dipping method I like to pour a layer of chocolate in a wax papered lined Pan (or over my marble block) let it set completely then pour my carmel over this, let it set up. Cut into squares & slightly separate the squares, or put them on to a cooling rack with a cookie sheet under them, then slowly pour your remaining chocolate over each. You can then reheat the chocolate that drips off and repeat process. This will get a uniform & perfect coating over each candy. They look like you bought them from a fancy chocolate shop, ;c) it sounds hard but it is much easier to get a good coat with out all the mess, dipping, & fork marks. I have had a lot of holes and marks in my candies, lol.. I love that I figured this out. Thank u to the one who posted this recipe, it's great!!
