Home Made Caramels

Doing Girl Stuff

Anna loves to help in the kitchen.... Actually, ALL the girls love to help, but this one is about Anna.

We made this YUMMY caramel on Saturday.

It was an easy recipe, but I think it could use some "tweaking".

The recipe is:

2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups corn syrup
1 Tsp Vanilla
1 Cup Butter
2 Cups Heavy Whipping Cream

put sugar, corn syrup butter and 1 cup of whipping cream
in heavy pan. Heat to boiling stirring regularly.
Then, when it comes to a boil, you add the other cup of
cream. Stir well and then do not stir anymore. Heat until
the candy thermometer gets to 242 degrees or hard but pliable ball stage.

Add Vanilla, stir and then pour mixture into parchment lined 13x9" pan.
Cool and cut into squares. Wrap in wax paper.

With the Extra Whipping Cream, Anna asked if she could make Butter, like we did at Log Cabin Village. So here she is shaking the jar. The butter is very tasty!

Frozen Bananas

The Frozen Banana Recipe

Well, it really isn't much of a recipe; more dircctions. :)

As many bananas as you want, peeled and cut in half.
Put a popsicle stick in the end and then place in a zip lock bag in the freezer
for about 2 hours.

Melt chocolate chips (milk chocolate or semi sweet) until syrupy... be careful
not to burn. We melted ours in the microwave.

Crush some almonds and place on waxed paper.... you can use chopped peanuts if you prefer.

Remove bananas from zip lock back and use a spoon to put melted chocolate on banana working quickly so chocolate doesn't get hard.... roll in nuts and place on waxed paper.

When finished, roll up bananas still in waxed paper and place back in zip lock bags.

Freeze for another hour or two and then Enjoy!~
