Mosaic Monday - chocolate edition

(click image to enlarge)
My friend and I decided to make caramels for Valentine's Day (as per Centsational Girl's recipe) and then dip them in chocolate.

It took forever for the ingriedients to reach the right temperature and there was some panic as it bubbled dangerously close to the top of a very tall pan but eventually we were able to pour and let set. Something didn't work out quite perfect because the caramels were softer than we anticipated. Add hot melted chocolate to an already soft caramel and you get the top right photo. Just to warn you. ;)

We let them set up overnight and then I laid them on wax paper and spooned a slightly cooled melted chocolate over them which worked much better.

By the way, they are delicious.

Be sure to visit Little Red House for other wonderful mosaics!

This does not look easy to do! I'm sure I would have burned the caramel. Looks like you did a great job!

Working with my candy thermometor is always scary for me too, but it works out in the end!

They look delicious!
