Lets Have Some Fun

The first three people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you.This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
1- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
2- What I create will be just for you.
3- It'll be done this year.
4- You have no clue what it's going to be.
5- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

The catch is that you must repost this on your blog and offer the same to the first 3 people who do the same on your blog. The first 3 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they did win a FAB-U-LOUS homemade gift by me! Oh, and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it!Who's in?

The Caramel Experiments

After much experimenting, my prefered recipe is this one, but heated to about 247. Also, I used a silicone baking pan to pour the hot caramel into and that prevented any problems with sticking. Using this recipe, I got caramels that were soft (but not so soft that they wouldn't hold their shape) when at room temperature and more like a hard candy when refrigerated. Which is perfect since I like them soft and my husband likes them hard!
