Cinco de Mayo is coming up! I saw this recipe posted on one of my favorite blogs and decided to try it (immediately). Jim is out of town, I haven't baked/created for a while, and I needed a little chocolate something- all good reasons to try something new!
The recipe made way more than these- I took a picture about a third of the way in to wrapping these babies.
The chile in these caramels is very, very subtle. I know it's there but you can't taste it much. I think next time I would throw in an extra chile for a kick!
Mmmmmmm Look at that salt. Salty and sweet. I'm quite certain that's my favorite kind of dessert now.
