Want Some Apple Cider Caramels?

It's that time of year when we are look forward to beautiful fall color.  Time for soups, casseroles and baking.  I have been wanting to make these lovely caramels for awhile now.


These are creamy and chewy treats that  will melt in your mouth.  They are different because of the added cider, cinnamon, allspice and cloves.
They will make lovely gifts or party favors.  I can see different possibilities...dipping them in chocolate  or ?

I wrapped them individually in parchment paper.

We bought this cute owl when we did our shopping at Pier1 recently.  Again, my husband picked it out.

Here's part of the slab of caramel before cutting.  I used a 13x9 baking pan.

Also, I am pleased to say, I am getting back into clogging again.  It's been awhile, so I have to get my feet dancing around again.
I am also going to a day of clogging at the Harvest Stomp next month with some friends.

Have a terrific week.  If you missed my  Wild Animal Tablescape, you can see it here.

  16. Hi Linda,

    Your apple cider caramels look delicious! Cozy, autumnal colours both in the adorable owl and the caramel, itself, provide autumnal ambiance. Thanks so much for sharing; will definitely try this treat!

  17. Awesome.
    I would never try my hand with caramels... seems like a out-of-this-world thing but you make it sound easy and can do.
    I'll give it a try.
    Autumn suits your kitchen and the owl is too adorable.
    Enjoy Autumn and so happy to have you back into clogging. You always look so happy and joyful that it will help you and others to fully jump the happy (forever) wagon.
    Enjoy!

  28. I might make these caramels for our Halloween party. They sound so yummy! I was recently thinking of you and wondering if you would be clogging again. I went to the Stokes Stomp when visiting North Carolina many years ago. I didn't even know what stomping was ;o) Love the owl.
