Inspired by Herbivore Dinosaur’s recipe, last night I tried my hand at making homemade chocolates. It was probably an ill-advised mess to get into at 9pm, but I just couldn’t help myself. In the end, I was rewarded with 3 different caramel goodies: chocolate covered caramels, chocolate caramel cups, and chocolate-covered caramel, cashew, and marshmallow candies (and I only managed to get a little caramel in my hair).
The whole sticky process:
The verdict: The caramels are tasty, but the plain, semi-sweet chocolate could use a little more zip. Next time, I think I’ll add a drop or two of vanilla extract to both the chocolate and the caramel.
