CHOCOLATE COVERED CARAMELS
1 bag of Kraft Caramels
4-5oz of Bakers Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate
Optional toppings: Sea Salt, White Chocolate Drizzles, Nuts, Sprinkles….
Unwrap all the Caramels and have them ready for dipping. Melt the baking chocolate in a microwave safe dish in the microwave. The best way to do this is to microwave it for 30 seconds, then mix. Then microwave it for another 30 seconds and mix. Then microwave it in 10 second intervals until you melt the entire block.
Using a toothpick or wooden skewer, stick the sharp end into the caramel and dip into the melted chocolate. Gently tap the skewer or toothpick on the edge of the bowl to get rid of the excess chocolate.
Place each caramel on a cooling rack. I placed a baking tray underneath to catch the excess chocolate.
While the chocolate is still wet, sprinkle any desired toppings on top. Place all caramels in the fridge for 30 minutes to harden. Then enjoy!! It really is that easy and they taste delicious. If you aren’t a fan of Kraft Caramels, the Werther’s Chewy Caramels work great also, and personally I think they taste a little better!!
