Caramels, Round Two

In one word, "unburnt." But still could use some work. This time around I used a heavier pot and didn't have an issue with burning, but parts of the caramel crystallized, which wasn't great. I'm not sure why, I'm no candy scientist. Oh, well. Next time I am curious to try a different recipe anyway, these ones are maybe too sweet. Not something I'd really think caramel could be, but I'm close to reconsidering. What's kinda funny, especially considering that I decorated them and everything, is that they're really just for me! (The Mister doesn't really care for caramels.)

And now I'll leave you with a handy kitchen tip: Never eat cooled caramel you find on a stove knob, especially if, when you think about it, you're not really one hundred percent sure it's caramel, and it might in fact be old barbecue sauce that dripped off a pork rib days ago. Just stop eating things off the stove knobs period.
