I was at the beach this summer and had some caramel candy "pinwheels."
They were soft caramel with some type of white center and they were swirled like pinwheels.
Do you know what these are called and how to make them?
Mmmmm. Those Caramel candies sound really wonderful. I'm almost positive I know exactly what you are referring to, but I haven't had them in years.
Something similar is the Bullseye Caramel and Cream Candy by Goetz that's always been one of my mother's favorite treats.
I don't have a recipe for caramel pinwheel candies, but maybe someone else does. Anyone???
If not, I wonder if we could come up with one from scratch. Making the chewy caramel shouldn't be too hard. There are plenty of recipes for that.
For the cream part, you could experiment with some of the fondant recipes
until you find a cream center that you prefer.
You can then make up your caramel and roll it out. Spread a fondant layer on top and then roll the whole thing up lengthwise and slice into pinwheels.
If you give it a try and come up with a masterpiece, I hope you'll come back and share the results and recipe with us.
