What can I say ......... this picture does a far better job of explaining that title, than any words I have to say.  However ...... this is a blog, so I'm going to tell you more about them :-)

Our plans for Christmas this year, mean that I have to be organized well ahead of time - no last minute, Christmas Eve gifts in this house, this year !!!! In the past our neighbor gifts have been cookie platters ..... assorted cookies packaged in a creative way. This year, I'm thinking of doing homemade candy trays .... Yum, Yum, Yum !!!
I already have a few tried and true candy recipes that I'll use. However, this magazine hit the grocery store shelves this week ...
Let me just say at this point, that I find it REALLY difficult to turn down anything Martha Stewart. I think she (or as my hubby likes to point out to me, her team) are creative geniuses. However, her recipes intimidate me .... why, I'm not entirely sure. The recipe for these caramels was in the latest issue though, and it seemed pretty simple - so I put on my apron, pulled out my candy thermometer, took a deep breath and got busy !!! They turned out perfectly, and were absolutely, melt in your mouth delicious !!! They will definately be on the candy gift trays this year.

So if caramels are your thing, I'd highly recommend a trip to the magazine aisle of the grocery store or book store ........... you wont be disappointed :-)


  1. Wow, those caramels look so good!! Yum! Yum!!

  2. I have made these many Christmas's and I will tell you, they are soooooo good.
