Caramel For Dipping is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The fun thing with this is you can put this in little molds, deep freeze it, then, quickly dip in some melted chocolate bits and then put back in the freezer,,, dip again... then, then you take it out of the deep freeze, and eat it, the caramel will be nice and gooey in your mouth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I didn't make this "Caramel for Dipping". I made it for my husband who puts a full, full teaspoon of it in his hot coffee each and every morning. I keep it in tightly covered container in the fridge and when we run out he lets me know pronto. This recipe has my husband 'spoiled'. Thankyou to the person who took the time to submit it.
