Well it has happened. I have had a Pinterest Fail of my own. I knew it would happen to me some day, but it shouldn’t have happened with this.
I don’t get it. I followed the recipe exactly!
Forever ago I pinned this delicious looking soft caramels recipe and thought to myself… “Katie, these would be a great holiday candy to make!”
So I pinned it away, waiting for the holidays and a baking mood to strike up.
I bought all the RIGHT ingredients
Added the Right amounts of ingredients and cooked for the RIGHT amount of time. (I was even using a candy thermometer!)
Pored it into my awaiting cake dish to let it cool
I went to cut it, and NOOOOOOOO! There was no cutting. I could chip chunks off but I think I would have broke my knife if I had forced it through.
So here I am, sitting with a very soar arm (I had to stir constantly for about 30 minutes – Which I did the RIGHT way. I never even stopped to take a sip of my glorious Sonic drink! Now you know that’s dedication!), and no yummy SOFT caramels.
I think next time I want some caramels I will just go buy a bag of Werther’s.
