Botched Caramel to Scrumptious Caramel Cups!

One more yummy treat before Christmas.
There really is no bad time to post something for your taste buds am I right!?

For one of my to-pass-out-Christmas-treats I wanted to make caramel.  
I made some a year or so ago.  It was good but turned out too soft.  Then I tried a few months later and it was break your teeth caramel.  This time I tried using a candy thermometer. . . apparently a faulty thermometer.
My caramel tastes super good, but is once again spoon caramel.
The last thing I need sitting around my house is a whole bucket of caramel, so I just had to figure out a way to still give it as a treat!
Presenting my chocolate caramel cups!

Here's a super quick rundown of what I did.
I started with mini muffin papers in my mini muffin tin.I filled each one about half full of melted chocolate.
Next I took my spoon caramel and took about a teaspoon and rolled it into a ball and pressed it lightly into a chocolate filled cup.
 A little drizzle of chocolate on top to make sure all the caramel is covered, then let them cool.
 As you can see I made some white chocolate and some milk chocolate.

And let me tell you, they are de-licious!
The caramel is the perfect consistency, and it the whole thing just melts in my mouth!
 So, I still ended up eating way too much yumminess, but at least I can still give most of it away.
So, go ahead and drool, and I'll eat one for you.  {Your welcome!}
A perfect solution to a whole batch of botched caramel. . . Phew!

Oh, and a very

Merry Christmas
Happy New Year
to you all!

I'm so thankful for all of you and hope your holidays are wonderful!
