With salted peanuts and chocolate too. Caramel is about feeling good. Wee Treats by Tammy from Tuesdays With Dorie assigned this recipe of happiness. Once in a while, everyone indulges in caramel. From dulce de leche to caramel apples and those amazing cubes of salted caramel candy? it's a seductive flavor that melts slowly in the mouth.
This complexity of sweetness, has a few rules of preparation. Patience is the key to success. In a heavy bottomed saucepan, let the sugar absorb the liquid. Well maybe one stir.
Add medium heat. And wait.
Watch for the bubbles. Pay attention.
Once boiled, now swirl the pan and continue to cook for the desired color.
Move the pan off heat and add the butter and cream. Stir.
And, there was a brownie cake beneath all that too. Well, another time for that.
