Maybe the strangest Recipe ever!

Caramel in a Can

So I had to try this recipe Kayla posted on her blog, sounded almost to good to be true! BUT Oh GOOD GOLLY let me tell you it is YUMMY! Strange recipe but YUMMY results.

So here is the start so you can see, 'yes you put the cans right in the water' boil for 3 hours making sure to keep water over the cans at all times. Not sure what would happen if you didn't but if I am going to work on something for 3 hours I want to be sure and do it right! lol Here it is afterwards. Pour it in a bowl, add a teaspoon of vanilla, stir it all up and like I said


I didn't take a photo of what it looked like when it 1st came out of the can and I should have because it is sorta yucky looking. But as soon as you stir it, it becomes this beautiful flow of golden tastiness. hee hee

This is what Kayla's looks like finished, I have not made my labels yet. But if you go over to her blog she has a template all ready for you to download. That way you don't have to bother with measuring, it is all ready to go! Pop on over to Kayla's blog and check out her Gingerbread man freebie and story. Love her blog!

Thank you KAYLA!!!
