This festive season during Diwali I decided to make these soft core chewy caramel chocolates.The kids love it but due to my hectic schedule in College I cannot make time.Holidays are a perfect time for making these sinful delicacies and definitely for making caramel,you do need to keep your head very cool.I hope you enjoy this recipe .there are many more methods for making caramel,but by trial and error I have found out that this one works best for me.

2.Sugar (2 cups)
3.Condensed milk(5 to 6 tbsp) or fresh cream(1 cup)
1.Plastic chocolate molds
3.Icing Bag or small spoon
Preparing the caramel
1.Add two cups of sugar in a heavy bottom wok over low flame.
3.Within 5 minutes slowly the sugar will melt into a brown liquid.
4.Keep stirring so that the liquid doesn’t get burnt.
5.Add cream or condensed milk.
6.The liquid will boil violently .be careful and keep stirring.It will turn into a chewy caramel.If you don’t want it to be very chewy and want a soft caramel you can add some more cream and mix.
