In the video below, Bianca Henry, the uber-organized Culinary Director of The Today Show, shows Amanda & Merrill a very simple way to make a basic butter caramel — delicious alone, salted, or stuck on a stick (like a Sugar Daddy — remember those? Or dip them in chocolate and voilà, a Sugar Mama!). No thermometers here, folks — we’re going on looks and looks alone.
Have fun with Bianca’s recipe for Firm Caramel — for many wonderful caramel things! To view, save, and print Bianca’s recipe, go here and for a video tip on how to melt chocolate for those Sugar Mamas, sans double boiler, go here.
