Why Won't My Caramels Harden?
Why won't my caramels harden?
I made homemade caramels for the first time. The recipe said to get the temp on the candy thermometer to 240 degrees. Got it up to 235 and wouldn't go any higher.
They've been sitting in the garage in Michigan for 2 days and it still won't harden.
Can I cook it over again?
Yes, you can try melting down your caramel and cooking it a bit longer. You do need to get the temperature higher if you want them to set more firmly - between 240 and 245 degrees F.
Let us know if you are able to rescue the caramels and get them to harden the second time around.
