Lazy Salted Caramels

20 Nov

I tried this easy – and delicious! – Nestle Toll House recipe for very easy salted caramels at my get-together.  They were a huge hit and so yummy.  I put the caramels in mini cupcake paper of all colors and patterns.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup NESTLE® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable shortening
  • 25 soft & chewy rectangular caramels, unwrapped*
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt

Directions

  1. Line baking sheet with wax paper.
  2. Microwave morsels and vegetable shortening in small, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 1 minute; stir. The morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted; cool slightly.
  3. Dip caramel pieces, using a fork, into melted chocolate. Shake off or scrape excess chocolate against side of bowl. Place on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with sea salt. Refrigerate for 15 minutes or until set.

Thanks, Nestle!  Love the recipe.

Yours-
