Caramel isn't complicated to make. It's essentially composed of water and sugar that's cooked together on high heat. Heated beyond 302° F, the syrup starts to assume its signature tan color tone and transforms into caramel.
We use this delectable sweet to flavor and decorate desserts and pastries, including caramel flan or nougat. Discover these 10 caramelicious recipes that will put you in a delicious daze.
Mini walnut caramel tarts
Making this scrumptious, crunchy, melt-in-your-mouth recipe is child's play. It's nothing but a shortbread biscuit, shelled walnuts and caramel—yet so freaking good! For the caramel, pour 3/4 cup sugar and 4 tablespoons water into a saucepan. Cook briefly on high heat without stirring, then lower the heat. Add 1 1/2 cups heavy cream, and mix well. When the caramel is ready, mix it with the walnuts, pour onto the prepared shortbread biscuits, and bake for 20 minutes at 350° F.
