Homemade Halloween Candy: Orange-Cardamom Caramels

Orange-Cardamom Caramels

What are you serving trick-or-treaters who come knocking on your door tomorrow? If you’re feeling a little uninspired by the candy choices at the store, have you thought about making your own homemade Halloween candy? My latest article for the Norwegian American Weekly features a recipe for orange-cardamom caramels, and they’re easy to make! All you need is a good candy thermometer, some time, and patience. If you don’t have any plans tonight, get to work making a batch of these, and let them set overnight. Then simply cut and wrap them tomorrow. Enjoy!

One thought on “Homemade Halloween Candy: Orange-Cardamom Caramels

  1. Delicious! Even if they didn’t quite turn out. I made them last week (too late to give out at Hallowe’en, oh darn :)). They stayed too soft. I first thought that my thermometer must be a little off. Then I wondered if I should have compensated for elevation. I live in Calgary, at over 3,000 ft elevation, and I have to compensate for it in some baking and in jam making. So next time I will go to 250 F, or maybe a little higher.??…
    Also, because they were so soft, I let some dry out a little bit, and I don’t know if it’s that some of the sugar crystallized, but it took the texture of very soft fudge. Maybe not perfect candies to show off, but they are so delicious that they may be all gone before I can show them off!
