This is beautiful stuff from a beautiful recipe. Actually, it takes in two recipes from Clean Eating with a Dirty Mind. Caramel Sauce, and then Chocolate Covered Caramel Cups.
The Caramel Sauce itself is just lovely. Smells divine, easy make. My personal tip? Watch your temperature. And…consider not putting it in the freezer. At least in my climate (Houston, TX)….the fridge should do it. In the freezer, it froze rock solid in minutes and never went back to liquid…but never fear….I mananged to heat and stir it back to softer and form it into little balls, pressed them into the chocolate…and then you get the pic above, which, is the DEVIL! So decadent and rich, even my husband (who would normally eat something like this like popcorn) said it was so rich he couldn’t eat more than one. DANG!
The flavor of the caramel is just beautiful…especially when you realize it comes from coconut milk!! Crazy good!
So, yeah. Do these. You will not regret it at all! I’m thinking these will be beautiful on your Holiday spread!
Oh one other thing, she leaves you on your own to pic the level of chocolate you use. I used semi-sweet mixed with dark chocolate. I will go all dark chocolate next time…the caramel is so sweet you can go deep and dark with the chocolate and still have plenty of sweet!
I hope you give these a try, they were fun to make! And more fun to eat! (Don’t panic, there are plenty in the fridge right now!!)
