I am a huge fan of fall baking. There is something so comforting about the taste of apples, pumpkins and caramel. My two boys are always insistent that as soon as they see the first caramel apple at the store, that it is time for fall. Since I bake and cook frequently, I am always looking for new ways to use familiar recipes and flavors. Recently I was given the opportunity to host a Werther's Original Baking Bash.
For the party I received 12 bags of Werther's Original Baking Caramels. In case you haven't seen this product in stores (since it's new) here is a brief description: "These rich and creamy Caramels are great for baking and making delicious caramel apples. Made with real butter and fresh cream, they are perfect for melting and incorporating into your favorite recipes."
So how did my party go? Since I am all about baking and cooking, I made the highlight of my party the food. I am used to only using caramels for a few dishes (such as caramel apples) so I was intrigued when the party planning kit included a number of recipes to try. I prepared the following recipes (the links are included for you to try the recipes for yourself).
Caramel Peanut Brittle:

Caramel Pecan Brownies:

Caramel Apple Tart:

While all the recipes were popular, the peanut brittle was the biggest hit. It was so easy to make and delicious! I sent everyone at the party home with a bag of peanut brittle along with a bag of the caramels to try for themselves.
