Homemade Caramel with Chocolates Candies
Caramel is a beige to dark-brown confectionery product made by heating any of a variety of sugars. It is used:

  • as a flavoring in puddings and desserts
  • as a filling in bonbons
  • as a topping for ice cream and custard

The process of caramelization consists of heating sugar slowly to around 170 °C (340 °F). As the sugar heats, the molecules break down and re-form into compounds with a characteristic color and flavor.

A variety of candies, desserts, and confections are made with caramel: brittles, nougats, pralines, crème brûlée, crème caramel, and caramel apples. Ice creams sometimes are flavored with or contain swirls of caramel.
Caramel candy is a soft, dense, chewy candy made by boiling a mixture of milk or cream, sugar, butter, and vanilla flavoring. The sugar are heated separately to reach 170 °C (340 °F), caramelizing them before the other ingredients are added.Alternatively, all ingredients may be cooked together; in this procedure, the mixture is not heated above the firm ball stage (120 °C (250 °F)), so that caramelization of the milk occurs but not caramelization of the sugars. This type of candy is often called milk
