Finally, I had a reason to use the chocolate party mold I've had for such a long time and also a reason to make the best homemade caramel in the history of caramel. It's my secret weapon for special favors from my daughter. It's so good, you can bribe anyone for anything, they will do it. No one had to bribe me to make these...
Chocolate Covered Caramel GiftsNow, I'm pretty sure you want one, I know I do.
What a way to celebrate a birthday!
Here's that special party mold I used to make the gifts.
After making (or buying) caramel, cut into squares.
Make sure they will fit the mold.
Then cut the remaining caramel.
Fill each cavity with chocolate, brushed it up the sides.
Add one caramel square to each and cover it with more chocolate.
I used Ghirardelli chocolate bars, melted in the microware on half power.
Place chocolate mold in the freezer until the chocolate is set.
Just like a little tea pot, turn it over and pop them out.
This is the hardest step of all...
Try not to eat them.
This is one present you'll need to open quickly.
