As you know, my friend Priscilla and I have a tradition of making our delicious caramels every year. We have been making these delicious caramels together for quite a few years now. Video #18 – Making Caramels with Priscilla
We love getting together to make them and catching up with each other as we are stirring the pots. The part I DON’T like, however, is the cutting and wrapping. It’s not that I don’t like it, but it is just so time consuming, especially since I make two big batches every year. Each batch that I make is 8 lbs of soft, sweet caramel, so that is 16 lbs that have to be cut and wrapped. On average, it takes me 4-5 hours per batch to cut and wrap them all. But they are now done for this year. WHOOOOO HOOOOOOO!!!!!
We always make plain caramels, and usually a chocolate nut one as well. This year’s chocolate nut caramel was chocolate salted cashew. I keep saying i want to venture out and try even more flavors, but then I remember the cutting and wrapping and think against making yet another batch. Maybe one day though. Who knows? 🙂
All that is left to do now is to package them up and hand them out. My friend Karen was asking me if they were going to be shared with friends. Her exact question was “hope those cavities are going to be shared amongst friends”. Yes indeed! I do not need all those calories or cavities. We make them to share and share we will. Each caramel is made with lots of love. 🙂
For all of my American friends, Have a very Happy Thanksgiving, and for everyone else, have a great day. Stay safe and stay well Everyone. ‘Til next time.
