I loved them both and my diet is so shot right now that I am ready to cry. This is a very bad hobby to pick up when you are also trying to lose weight. That is why I like playing around with the fondant - I def. won't eat that.
I do the same...I cook mine on the stove normally in a double boiler, but have done it in the crock pot with great results. However if you do the crock pot method (google that) DO NOT OPEN it for several hours. I opened mine right away and it blew hot caramel on my hands! Ouch!
Once it's completely cool, I mix it with IMBC. Although, I looooooove me some cream cheese and might have to try that other recipe!
There is a recipe for a thick and creamy caramel filling here on CC that is AMAZING. I always make it the night before. If you have never had home made caramel filling before...you do not know what you are missing. I will never, ever, ever go back to anything else. Get a big spoon and get ready! I use it constantly for my praline fillings and my turtle fillings.
It's this one.
It's this one.
Thank you! That looks great.
I'm getting ready to do a 4 tier wedding cake with praline filling using that caramel recipe. I can't wait!
I was reading some of the comments to that recipe..someone said that they had trouble cutting through it..the OP said maybe it was too cold or they over cooked it..have you ever had an issue like that with it?
wow! I answered that on my phone..talk texting. Should not do that! Anyway...I think the person who posted that problem did something wrong. I have made that recipe hundreds of time and 100% successful everytime. I freeze the left overs and sit out on the counter overnight to soften back up. Even cold I would still be able to cut through it. They must have went beyond the "soft boil" stage.
