mmmmm caramels...

Everyone knows my addiction to Pinterest.  Well, if you don't then just know, I have a huge addiction.  I love that site.  I am very visual and so I love being able to see my bookmarks in picture form.  That said, I am participating in a little Pinterest Challenge with one of my moms forum.  We are supposed to select one thing we have pinned and in a week, complete it.  I have probably well over 1,000 pins.  WELL over 1,000.  I have only done a few of the ideas, but I am trying really hard to follow through with more of them.  I am doing really well by trying out some of the recipes that I have pinned.  

I saw this pin yesterday and after looking at the ingredients, I realized I had everything to make this, so Lucy and I set out.  The first batch went ok.  I tried to line the glass pan with wax paper then pour piping hot caramel into it.  Then I put it in the freezer to chill it.  Well it cooled but the wax paper stuck to it so now if you break off a piece, you get wax paper too.  

Then, we made another batch.  This one I just sprayed the glass pan so that the candy wouldn't stick.  Then we threw it in the freezer.  And I left it in the freezer to long.  It froze solid.  Ugh.  Well I let it sit on the counter for a bit to soften up then I took my pizza cutter and sliced it into pieces.  It's sooooooooooooo chewy so I tried to cut it into small pieces.  It was sooooooooo hard to cut.  But I got through half of it and then individually wrapped each piece in wax paper.  

It was good.  It's very rich and so super chewy but it was good.  I think once I get all of it cut up I am going to keep them in the freezer until we want to eat them.  I don't know what I am going to do with the batch that stuck to the wax paper.  Either way it was good.  I really like that it is an easy sweet treat.  But it is a little greasy because the butter, but still yummy!  Oh and I added some sea salt on the top so it was a salted caramel.
