About Caramel
In Chocolate Candy Making

What is the toughest thing about caramel for you?

Is it trying to get the caramel into the candy molds without making a big mess?

Are you finding more of your time is spent dealing with caramel preparations than making chocolate candy?

I was taught to "simply" unwrap the caramel squares for my chocolate caramel candy, chocolate caramel apples, caramel pecans, or whatever. Oh yeah, I can't forget about my favorite frustration... unwrap 2000 individually wrapped caramels and don’t forget to smash each one down to the right size...” Yikes!

If you've wrestled with layering chocolate caramel anything, then you gotta have these easy to follow tips and tricks.

Here’s where things heat up in the kitchen.

When you’re making chocolate candy in my kitchen, it is the hottest thing there is when you consider all the other basics of chocolate candy making.

You're not going to unwrap any caramels. Well, maybe one if you want. I have to slap my own hands sometimes too. Hey the stuff is good!

Wondering what I mean when I say “hottest thing there is?” You might be thinking "I'm not making caramel, I'm adding caramel to my chocolate candy molds." And you'd be correct!

How to work with caramel for chocolate candy making, chocolate candy recipes, or melting caramel for chocolate candy molds is pretty easy..., 

And that should apply to any brand you use with chocolate carmel bars, or candy making you decide to create here in my kitchen.

Peter's Caramel

If you have dealt with caramel squares, you have unwrapped your last bag of caramel squares!

But Wait You've probably even heard the same thing with caramel in bulk too...

"whack off a chunk of caramel and add it to the chocolate candy mold."
"smash it down, add nuts, smash it down... blah blah, " BORING!

A complete waist of you're valuable time!
