I’ve been away from #SundaySupper for a while. Not by choice, well I suppose it was by choice but not because I wanted to be away. I mean I’ve been busy but I’ve kind of been absent because I don’t remember our “recipe deadline” until after it’s over. Opps. Bad me! I am setting myself a reminder! I don’t want to miss out anymore, I love #SundaySupper and my blog always feels sad when I miss weeks and weeks of #SundaySupper.
But what a wonderful week to come back! This week it’s all about music! Susan from Girl in the Little Red Kitchen is hosting #SundaySupper this week and we’re sharing recipes that are inspired by music.
Ok, two of my favorite things in the entire world, music and food. My world revolves around the two. I always have to have music (it is driving me INSANE that my car radio is dead right now, as in I have resorted to listening to music on my phone while I drive because I HAVE TO HAVE MUSIC. I listen to music when I work, when I drive, when I clean, when I cook, when I edit photos, when I write blog posts (listening to Pirate Flag by Kenny Chesney at this very moment, thank you) when I walk, when I pathetically try to jog, when I swim….there just has to be music. It feeds the soul.
Then there is food. It feeds the body. I think about food all of the time. How to make this, how to make that. How to make this less fatty, how to make that healthier. Can I make a homemade version of this, how was that made. How to make this faster, how to make that better. What can I make for the blog, what can I make for dinner, what can I make for this party, what can I make for this birthday party. Literally it’s always on my mind.
So when I was looking over the theme for this weeks #SundaySupper, guess what was playing…. Music. haha At Last by Etta James to be exact. (it’s on my “Love It” playlist in Spotify too) The second I read the theme, I went to the song I was listing too, sat there a moment and picked the first thing that came to mind.
In this case, Caramels. Why? That’s a weird food to associate with “At Last”. Well not really. Have you ever listed to “At Last”? I hadn’t really listened to it, took it in really until after I was married. I knew the song, I knew the words, but I didn’t feel the song until I got married. So of course when I think of it, I think of love, I think of romance and when I have to add it to food I think of what I consider one of those (one of my) favorite romantic foods. Caramels, Chocolate Caramels to be exact.
These Chocolate Covered Caramels are incredibly easy to make. I suppose maybe I should have called them Caramel Filled Chocolates, but too late now. It’s a milk chocolate shell, filled with ooey gooey homemade caramel. I sprinkled a little bit of coarse sea salt on the tops because eating them, but that’s 100% optional. They’re just as wonderful without it.
I didn’t keep them in the fridge long, so my caramel was still a bit creamy on this batch, but I’m perfectly fine with it that way (doesn’t break your teeth haha). But if you want a thicker caramel, just refrigerate them for a while. 🙂
