Caramallows - Sprinkle some sugar

These Caramallows have a layer of soft and buttery caramel, topped with homemade and fluffy marshmallows and all are immersed in a layer of sweet chocolate. Save a trip to the candy store and make them at home!

Caramallows - Sprinkle some sugar

I am sharing these glorious little candies with you today! Now, I'm not a candy maker because chocolate dipping can be a little tedious for my little attention span, but once in a while they're fun to make. While you have a candy thermometer, you can totally confront these Caramallows! You will start with some homemade soft candies, then finish off with soft and fluffy marshmallows made at home and everything is wrapped in a soft and silky chocolate.

 Talk about one of the most delicious things I've ever tasted, I can not even explain it!
