Chocolate caramel sweets

As with many other foods, I have some great memories from chocolate and caramel. Think of Twix, for example. If there’s anyone that’s a huge sweet tooth, it’s my dad. He always has some candy in his car and next to his favourite chair, whether that’s chocolates or typical Dutch liquorice… And when we were younger, my dad always thought he could successfully hide those from my brother and me.

Ha! Was he wrong. My dad told me a little while ago that he was always very happy to see my little brother and I running towards him when he came home, only to see us disappear into his car to steal some of his ‘hidden’ sweets. Aww! Poor dad.

Whenever all of us are home, we are often together in the living room at night. One of the memories I have from ‘my early years’ was that even when my younger brother and I were just a few metres away, dad thought he could sneakily eat some chocolate caramels…. Naturally, we could hear the crackling of the the candy wrappers from across the room!

I’m hoping to save some of those chocolates for dad, but as I’ve only made 20 that’s going to be a challenge… We’re almost out already!

Now that I’ve shared a story that I associate with chocolate caramels, I think it’s time to share the recipe! Honestly, these white chocolate cups are the best. First you bite into the sweet. crunchy chocolate on the outside and then you hit that sweet espresso caramel centre, that’s really nice and chewy…. Gahhh, I have to keep myself from eating them right now!

  1. I love homemade candies like this..I try and tell myself it’s ok to eat them if they’re homemade! lol I guess there’s some truth to that. 🙂 I have a sweet tooth and indulge in something chocolate every day. These look just perfect!
