I have a wonderful friend Vivian, who owned a candy store once upon a time… She was kind enough to teach my son and I how to make chocolates! She’s taught us how to make Peanut Butter Cups, Rocky Road Popcorn, and Chocolate Covered Pretzels!
I am in chocolate Heaven!
Today I attempted Caramel on my own… Vivian taught us to make several items when making a batch of Caramel and ways to use Chocolate when we were finished dipping so as not to waste. I made the Pretzels and Turtles using the caramel and milk chocolate wafers melted in a double boiler. I used the excess to decorate with sprinkles.
I also have caramel that I am planning on molding with chocolate tomorrow.
Vivian is the same friend who gave me the recipe for Sourdough Bread. She is so generous with her knowledge! Plus, she’s a quilter to boot… That’s always tops in my book. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!
