This recipe is wonderful. It's short, sweet and no-bake!
Sometimes, I really just don't feel like turning the oven on. It may have something to do with the fact that my life revolves around ovens most of the time. It also may have something to do with my lack of time management skills coupled with my excellent procrastination skills. I'm always running behind on things.
These caramel candies (if you can call them that) come together in a snap. The great thing about them is that they set in the freezer in a matter of minutes, so you can leave them and forget about them if you want to. These things take care of themselves. There is nothing hidden in this recipe. The only thing you have to do with them is assemble, dip in chocolate (if you're into that), and devour.
I made a few different varieties of caramels. Some I stuffed with walnuts or pecans. Some I infused with peanut butter, crushed up gluten-free pretzels, and peanuts...you know, nothing too crazy. ;)
Play around with these! I would like to make different flavors in the future. The base caramel is a great canvas for any ideas that you might have. I mean, coffee beans? orange peel? candy canes? popcorn? You decide!

This is my very first food blog! I post revised conventional recipes of foods that I hold near and dear to my heart. My cooking here is all gluten-free and cruelty-free, but full of flavor and comfort.
