Spur of the moment Coffee chewy carmel...
After dinner today, small and uninteresting, I felt like something sweet.
I popped some butter into a pan, added brown sugar, milk and Starbucks coffee liqueur. Brought it up to a boil and cooked until a firm softball stage.
I let that cool a bit, stirred in a little more butter and vanilla, whipped it a bit by hand then I placed in a greased bowl to cool in the refrigerator. Wow.. Very dark and tasty. Buttery carmel flavor with a nice coffee overtone....
I wish I hadn't found how easy carmels are to make... You don't even to measure.. I just toss stuff in the pan.
