These might seem like they’re meant for the holidays. That’s because they came from the Sugar and Spice section of the app.
Do I care? Let’s see…
Nope! It may be Spring, but they look great.
What’s wrong with this picture? You’re right! It’s the caramels. You know this is a McCormick-sponsored recipe when you see those. Martha would have told me to make my own damn caramel.
This would also be the time you’d add the pecans if you didn’t hate them.
You’ll notice some pics from another point of view. I had an assistant. She unwrapped all the caramels
because I forced her to out of the goodness of her heart.
Willow says, “Microwaving caramels? Is this recipe for kids?” She is not impressed.
If you could hear the sounds this makes while stirring. It’s…delightful.
It’s a diabetic waterfall!
It’s a diabetic swimming pool!
This was hard and didn’t look like the picture. All the batter was sinking in the caramel pool.
Oh no, I ruined it. It looks terrible.
It stayed warm, so I let it cool overnight. It looks much better now!
That knife got stuck in the caramel several times. I think falling into a pool of caramel would be worse than quicksand.
They turned out!
Start time: 9:30
End time: 9:45 (12 hours, 15 mins)
Martha’s estimated time: 1 hour, 15 mins
What did I learn?
- Melting store-bought caramels is cheating, but was convenient.
- Let it cool before judging.
- Cats have high standards.
What do I need to learn?
- Why are there so many recipes with pecans and walnuts? Do people really like those?
These were very good and very popular. I’ll probably make them again during the holidays.
