Turning a Caramel Recipe into Fudge

by Erin

Several years ago my Mom made what was supposed to have been Cappuccino Caramels -- but something went wrong (or right as far as I'm concerned).

Instead of having the consistency of caramels (soft and chewy), it had the consistency of fudge (still soft but a little crumbly).

Over the years we've tried to recreate the "mistake" but haven't been able to.

Should we be cooking to a different temperature, or is it an ingredient amount we should be making different?

Hi Erin,

I don't know the answer to this one, but I'm hoping someone else will be able to help you out.

Don't you love it when a mistake becomes a masterpiece? :)

Can anyone help Erin???
