The caramels tasted very good and just yummy. I love to try new recipes, in any part of the world because food has no boundaries. I saw this recipe in TLC, i really liked it and start finding the products in Bangalore, its very tough to get ingredients in India, but you don't worry, I can find out the best substitutes of these ingredients.
