National Caramel Month: How to Make Cream Caramels

National Caramel Month has finally arrived in the month of October.

creamCaramel is simply created by combining sugar with a liquid and boiling it until it thickens suitably.

Another way to create a richer caramel is to combine the water and sugar as above, but adding butter, heavy cream & vanilla extract.

A lovely recipe for Cream Caramels that follows.
