I've always wanted to make homemade caramels, but I've always been too intimidated to try. Then I got my latest issue of Martha Stewart magazine and there was a recipe for homemade caramels, I took it as a sign to finally give it a try. I won't blame Martha for the way they turned out as it was probably a combination of things. They are actually still quite tasty they just didn't get quite as hard as I would have liked. I think I was a little paranoid about taking them off right when they reached the correct temperature and didn't leave them on the heat quite long enough. My husband still gave them a thumbs up. They were really easy to make and I'll definitely be giving it another try. I've heard Ina Garten's are pretty tasty too, might give those a try on the next go round.
Here's the recipe from Martha Stewart
