Sorry I haven't posted in a long time, but with school and all, it gets kinda busy around here.
We've made some new friends at the St. Croix Chocolate Co. They brought me some chocolate to practice my tempering. They also brought my mom a box of chocolates, and I tried the salted caramel chocolate, and I loved it so much, I decided to make my own with the chocolate they gave me.
We had made caramel yesterday for dipping apples, and there was a lot of extra. We figured it would be a good reason to use it up. My mom helped me temper the chocolate and dip the caramels, and I sprinkled the salt on top.
We had to set the caramel outside in the freezing cold air to get it hardened up enough to handle, and that worked way better than any freezer. They all turned out pretty and tasty! The caramel inside was all nice and gooey!
