I am hoping to make some apple flavored cupcakes, ( using Crystal Light Appletini mix to add apple flavor) then dip them into red fondant, and add a pretzel and leaf at the top. ( Saw a picture somewhere of one like that, and it was VERY cute! ) It would be so yummy if I could make caramel flavored fondant, too. I don't have time to order caramel flavor oil, so wonder how caramel would work. I don't know if caramel would be too sticky. Has anyone ever used caramel?
I was thinking to use the recipe I use for white chocolate MMF, and sub 12 ounces of melted caramels for the chocolate chips. Has anyone tried it? - Thanks for looking at my question.
I'm quite interested to see if this will work, but wouldn't caramel baking melts (not sure what they're called, but they're near the chocolate) be better? Of course, I might just be misunderstanding what you mean by caramels.
I am actually just getting ready to try it! - Though I lucked out, because Wal-Mart now has a caramel extract flavoring, so I will be using that! Also, Duncan Hines now has the flavor mixes for frosting, and they have a caramel flavor packet. I bought both, and am not sure which I will use yet. I'll let you know how it goes.
- It turned out really well! I ended up using the caramel extract. 2 teaspoons in place of vanilla. Tastes like caramel!
Thanks for sharing!!! I'll have to give it a go, it sounds absolutely scrumptious
FYI there are Kraft "Caramel & Vanilla" marshmallows that are delicious!
