Sniccups!! Hilarious! I love it!

No, Hall, Auntie ButtPain does NOT deserve some of these. These are what I am adding to my 'Premium' line of cupcakes. People will not be getting these bad boys for $1.25, so siree!! And these are not for problem customers either. You have to be good, good, good to get these! Thanks for needing something, that gave me the idea!

Fiddle, you know I love you! And Chass, even though you've gone to the dark side, you're still on my 'good' list for Christmas! icon_lol.gif You two are incorrigible, and I wouldn't have it any other way! {{{You Two}}}

But hey, yah, cupcake party at my house! (Hope y'all know how to plaster and do drywall! I have a few rooms to go! Hehehehe) (Don't worry, I also need a few to dote on the babies, first come, first serve!)

Ok, I thought I'd share the 'next day' assessment. I had one of the "Galaxies" mini cuppies. I always like to see what new ideas are like after they sit for a while. Well.... NO problem here! thumbs_up.gif I didn't fill the minis because I was just feeling lazy, but they are still awesome!!! Here is a peek inside! YUM-A-ROONY-DOONY!!! I just love how the caramel feels silky and smooth in contrast with the crumb texture of the cake. It's a real winner!

DH sent some replies home to me from work (that is of COURSE where I sent the big ones!) and people really like them. One lady said she really likes that you have to eat them slower because of the caramel, so you really get to savor the taste. With the regular cuppies they are so darn 'slammable' that they pound them back without getting to truly enjoy them half the time! (That's why they always want two or three!)

I just made a caramel similar to this for apples over the weekend, and it's wonderful. I need to try these Snickers cuppies! I LOVE caramel!

Now Fiddle, I wouldn't want you to have to go back and look at the instructions or anything, so I'll REPEAT MYSELF!! hehehehe, just teasing of course! I took these to about 242 or 243. It made them wonderfully soft, but they held up on the cuppy, didn't run off the sides. I was able to cut it with a cookie cutter. So, firm but chewy I guess. When I make caramels for cutting into chunks and eating 'out of hand' I always make them firmer or else when you lay them on the platter (or wherever) they start to slide down and spread out. ANNOYING! icon_rolleyes.gif

And yes, by the way, posting that pic was straight up evil in some respects, but I'm getting this weird (and totally inaccurate) rep around here of being nice and helpful. I had to set the record straight, and QUICK! icon_twisted.gif This seemed like the best way to hurt many people all at once! icon_lol.gif

icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif Thx for not making me hunt all the way back to page 1 icon_surprised.gificon_lol.gif
We have to keep the thread going anyway dont we ? icon_razz.gif
Ok so say you were making these to just eat out of hand. How do you store /wrap them for that? Do you wrap them in the little square papers ? Or what ? Will they get real hard ?
Is this caramel recipe a Mel original ??? icon_confused.gif

Oh Sorry the recipe it self was on page 2! And anything with sweetened condensed milk in it has to be good !

Mel, did you use dark chocolate or milk? Looks like dark to me. I don't remember you saying specifically but I could be wrong. But I doubt it. lol. Just kidding.

When I make them to eat out of hand I usually cook them to almost 250. And I do a plethora of things to them. It depends on what the customer wants (or whoever will be eating them) what time of year it is, and what the occasion is, you know? Sometimes I put them straight on a platter, sometimes cut in squares in a little mini candy liner, sometimes wrapped in colored foil, etc.

I also really like to do fun things with the caramel apples. This week I made peanut, M&M, and pecan. I also like to do mini Reeses pieces, chocolate drizzle, anything!

I did actually specify milk chocolate, I *think* but you were probably too busy drooling!! (I forgive you for that!) I figured that would be more like the actual candy becuase it's milk chocolate, you know? But you could do whatever flavor you like best! My sister already wants some with white chocolate! icon_smile.gif
