Update to Operation:  make Caramels

Not a total failure, in that the substance when removed from the refrigerator had the general smell and taste of caramels...

...but was the consistency of Hard Candy, which is what I get for letting the temperature exceed the required.

Ergo, that slab o'caramelly-like substance found its way into the trash.  I will be trying again today or some time later this week, but keeping a much closer eye on the temperature.

Amidst knitting socks and doing my usual sunday clean, I will be attempting mint chocolate truffles today, and will also be making fudge.  Those two, at least, I'm sure I can manage without screwing them up.

Aww. The thing to do with said slab of caramelly-like susbtance is to melt chunks of it with heavy cream and make incredibly good ice cream sauce.

ooooooooooooooooooooo

I may have to try again, just for that end result.

I seem to recall that we killed a pan the last time caramel was attempted....!

Erm...that was caramel frosting, and I did manage to salvage the pan as I recall. Not the plastic spoon that I melted into the caramel, though.

Of course, I also know exactly what I did wrong that time. Didn't help when I tried again, though. ;)
