We ended up going to my friend Gina's house. She has this fancy pants oven that I was SO excited to use.
The stove clearly didn't like me, but after a few laughs, I got some Werther's Originals baking caramels melting on the stove. I added a little bit of cream and melted it over low heat. In a seperate pot, I put some Ghiardelli white chocolate chips in a double boiler (a metal bowl that fits over a saucepan works fine. Put enough water in the saucepan so its about an inch or two BELOW the bottom of the bowl. This will help the chocolate melt but not burn or boil.) and melted those down with a little Crisco. (That there is a little baking tip from a friend of mine. Crisco doesn't change the taste of the chocolate but it gives it a nice glossy, smooth consistency and look. She is absolutely right!)
You could top this with toffee, peanuts, or most other candies or nuts. You could also use a dark chocolate or a milk chocolate. You can absolutely put your own spin on it! It's a nice mix of salty and sweet. I ended up sharing this with my friends that night, and leaving them with containers full of it for their families. I'm pretty sure it was a hit with everyone!
