CHOCOLATE COVERED CARAMELS - FOOD PHOTO SHOOT

last month
74 in photography

Okay, I’ve gotta know, it’s getting pretty close to Christmas on the countdown, who’s got their trees up?

We put ours up over weeks ago now and I’m still having so much fun just staring at it everytime I’m around it. It’s the BEST time of year!!!!

This recipe is for the salted caramels that I made for Christmas time. Up until then I had somehow never tried making soft caramels ever. I’ve made so many caramel sauces, and caramel corn, and stuff, but never tried making them solid.

These are life altering guys and that’s why I had to share them. It took me quite a few tries (and maybe a few moments of acute frustration) to get them perfect without the use of corn syrup. I know that dealing with sugar is a little scary for some of you but all it takes is a little patience and practice.

These are actually not long or hard to make and they make the perfect gift to give. Wrap them in a pretty little box with a bow and a note and you’re seriously gonna make someone’s entire day, no, their entire holiday!

Impressed! Caramels are hard to make. As you say it took you a few tries. That stuff gets dangerously hot. I'm glad you didn't use corn syrup, that stuff is so artificial. What did you use plain white sugar?

·

I try to always avoid corn syrup, however it is in nearly everything you buy at the grocery store. Thanks so much for the great comenting and I hope your travels are going well?

It makes me so sad. Probably 95% of our food in the states is tainted in way or another, and it's totally reflected in the health of our population. I like how you do all you can to keep the garbage out of what you make. One thing that hit me like a tone of bricks was eating some pineapple in the Florida last week after eating pineapple in Thailand for the past four months. The American pineapple tasted all watered down and flavorless. It's a real shame. I'm now in Ecuador, and pineapple tastes like pineapple once again. Sorry too much information, but after years of travel and returning home this stuff really makes me sad, upset, disappointed, confused. We have everything in the states except the most important thing.....clean food. I talk to people from Europe and other parts of the world about corn syrup....they say "What is that?" Again I commend you on doing all you can regarding healthy ingredients. Keep up the great work. -Dan

Dan, wow, amazing commenting as always, but this time you were fired up. Your statement "We have everything in the states except the most important thing.....clean food." is so true. I've really noticed a segment of the population since I have been back and it is very sad. It makes my Dad angry. It's all about money, it's a full circle between the food and medical industries. My Dad says it's fascism a.k.a corpratism.

You and your dad are spot on. The all mighty dollar comes before everything including out fellow citizen's health. It breeds an unhealthy society in various ways. Probably the primary reason I choose not to live in the US, but only to visit for short amounts of time. It's just too disappointing/upsetting for me at times. Especially when I just came from some poor country, with all thin healthy people, low crime, strong families, and no issues of depression and mental illness. So happy you and I have connected on here. Looking forward to meeting you at steemfest 3, whenever and wherever that is. The way things have been going for me, like you said, I'll have to go! Have a great day! -Dan

yup, you must go to the next steemfest. I don't know where it will be either, but I'd wager some where in the states.

Yeah, the depression thing is hard to understand really, especially after being in other countries as you say. There is a large amount that just would not survive in other countries. I've been dragged into walmart a couple of time and it is so sad.

Those look so good! My mom made and sold chocolates every year around Christmas when I was a kid. This brings back so many memories of dipping chocolates, trays and trays of them in the freezer, and all of the big batches being mixed and bags of them for days. Lol. Such good, delicious memories.
