  • 28 individually wrapped Kraft Caramel candies -Approximately 8 oz
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream


  • Unwrap all of the caramels candies, cut each into 4 pieces and place them in a medium bowl
  • Bring the heavy whipping cream up to a boil and pour it over the caramel . Cover the bowl with a plate to trap the heat and let sit for 5 minutes
  • After 5 minutes the caramel will be soft but not melted, in 30 second intervals heat it in the microwave . Stir well in between, it is ready for the next step when the mixture is completely smooth.
  • Prepare an ice water bath in a larger mixing bowl your other bowl will fit in
  • Now place the smaller bowl with the caramel mixture into a ice water bath and beat with an electric mixer, stopping to scrap down the sides
  • This will take about 5 minutes but eventually the mixture will get creamy and thicken, you want the consistency to be able to drizzle off a spoon but thicker than melted caramel
