    So lovely… These are my first impression of your site and, useless to say, it’s a bright one!
    I’ll make them for a friend who can no longer eat candies for she has developed an allergy to food colouring, I’ll let you know… =)

    All the best, Chiara, Florence

    OMG! These caramels are simply amazing!
    I’m trying this recipe as soon as I collect the ingredients!
    However, can you please tell me whether these caramels are sticky and gooey or rather hard?
    Cheers :)
