tricky treats: salted honey caramels


cream + butter + sugar + honey + salt...


i have always wanted to try making caramels...


so earlier this week when i painted a caramel, i decided that the time had arrived...


i used this recipe...


and the result was buttery, salty deliciousness.

seriously.

having these in the house is dangerous.

i will be giving these away as quickly as possible.

i already gave a bag full of these treats to my best friends next door.

if you would like to make these:

caramel isn't difficult to make, but i highly recommend doing some research before you try it.
