Homemade Candies – Sea Salt Caramels & Reese’s Cups



I have been baking up a storm this week! I don’t have much time, but I wanted to post about these two homemade candy recipes. They are both WONDERFUL! The Sea Salt Caramel recipe can be found here from O Magazine. I will post the recipe to the Reese’s cups below! Hope you enjoy them…have a great rest of the week!

Homemade Reese’s Cups
Ingredients:
1/2 c peanut butter
a little less (scant) than 1/2 c powdered sugar
1 1/2 T Butter, softened
1/2 t vanilla
1 1/2 – 2 t salt, to taste (you want it to be salty…this is what makes a Reese’s cup…that salty flavor of the PB and the sweet chocolate)
1 bag chocolate chips (i used a mix of Ghiradelli milk and semi-sweet)
Beat the pb, sugar, butter, vanilla and salt until creamy.
Melt your chocolate down (either using a double broiler or the microwave). Spoon a little of the chocolate into a foil cupcake liner. Roll about a teaspoon of the PB mixture into a ball and pat it down. Gently place the PB patty on top of the chocolate. Cover with more melted chocolate. Let these harden at Room temperature. Remove the foil wrapper and store in an airtight container.
