I have a few bags of caramels left and I've been
wondering what would happen if I cooked some of them.
I've never cooked caramels before, other than just melting them for
apples so I was thrilled when I ended up with toffee.
This is easy toffee. Cheater Toffee!
Actually, I was home alone and bored.
It can be a dangerous thing when I'm bored.
So here's my magical recipe for easy toffee....
Caramels and a few tablespoons of water!
I chopped the caramels so they would "melt" faster.
I dumped them in a pot and added about 2 tablespoons
of water and let it boil. Once the caramels were completely melted,
I boiled it for exactly 5 minutes and poured it onto a greased dish.
I didn't have any parchment paper so I used cooking spray.
While that was cooling, I chopped and melted some chocolate in the microwave.
I started with 15 seconds and then did 5
more seconds until it was completely melted.
And I poured it on top of the toffee.
After letting it cool, I broke it into pieces and ate it.
So so yummy! I love love love toffee.
Who knew you could get toffee from boiling caramels?
Obviously not me.
Okay, true story.
I just about electrocuted myself trying to take
pictures for this post. Not funny!
I was using an old lamp for lighting and
I went to pick it up and the thing shocked me horribly.
It went through my whole arm and up my neck.
And after a few seconds, unbearable pain set in and
lasted for a few hours. I was so freaked out that I had to call
my husband, who was on the road traveling back home from working out of town.
There weren't any exposed wires or anything so I do not know what happened.
