Daring Bakers Make Candy!

The August 2011 Daring Bakers’ Challenge was hosted by Lisa of Parsley, Sage, Desserts and Line Drive and Mandy of What the Fruitcake?!. These two sugar mavens challenged us to make sinfully delicious candies! This was a special challenge for the Daring Bakers because the good folks at http://www.chocoley.com offered an amazing prize for the winner of the most creative and delicious candy!

So my for my candies, I attempted to make caramel pops from Sugar Baby. I didn't think the caramel would set so I tried cooking the caramel longer and adding some chocolate chips. This time it did set but it was rock hard, like the chocolate pops at See's Candy. The first pops which I didn't think would set sort of set, but turned into complete blobs of caramel the next day (hence the absence of a picture). (Btw, sorry for the bad photos, it's kind of hard taking pictures on crutches :( ) Anyways, the chocolate pops on the other hand were pretty good though, especially dipped in some more chocolate!
