Step 4 – We melted more chocolate and did our second layer around the shell – quite the professionals by now.
Step 5 – Sit down and watch a movie while waiting for that caramel to boil…
Step 6 – Melt more chocolate to make the top part of the kiss… and pour it into the cool funnel thing (with the mandatory grease) and put it into the freezer (even though Mr. Colin thought it would go cold in the wrong way….hmmm?).
Step 7 – THE CARAMEL IS EVENTUALLY READY! And so we opened the tins, and poured it into a bowl to cool. Sadly our caramel didn’t thicken enough, and in a moment of excitement we poured in icing sugar to help solve the problem, only problem was the sugar was lumpy and so we then had white lumps in our precious caramel. But who can be bothered doing the whole thing again?? NOT US! So caramel with white lumps it is. We poured it into our shell and were very happy with the fact we were almost finished!
Step 8 – Almost finished the project…now we had to turn it out of the mold. After banging, using a hairdryer and some wishful thinking, the main part of our kiss came out – much to our relief!
All we had left to do was put the top on our base and we were finished! Okay so by our own admission the top is a little out of proportion but we think it is a pretty impressive attempt!
And here you have it ladies and gentlemen…the giant caramel kiss… this baby weighs over 2kg and is full of sweetness that will make you sick!
The cross section…alternatively known as the cave with caramel dripping down…
Sorry we do not have a caramel Hershey to compare it with – but we can’t buy those in the middle of the desert where we live (seriously we actually live in Central Asia so feel this whole feat needs extra pointage for location alone!) – and so have to do with the plain ones that someone brought us…..
Mr. Colin will consume for his birthday…Ms. Becky never wants to see caramel again…the end….
