These caramels need few words, so I won’t leave you with many.
I found this recipe several months ago and have kept it tucked away in my arsenal of holiday baking ideas. I decided to make them this week and use one of our favorite beers brewed in downtown Lexington – Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale. It is an ale aged in oak barrels that were previously used to age bourbon.
This was my first time making caramels and I practically did a happy dance in the kitchen when I realized they were setting up correctly.
These caramels are nothing short of perfect – soft, sweet, salty – it doesn’t get any better.
Bravo to Sprinkle Bakes which is where you can find the recipe.
