Wow! I can hardly believe there are only 10 days left until Christmas! It seems like this month is going even faster than this year did. If you are anything like me you are likely in the middle of holiday party madness. School, friends, playgroups… every time I turn around I have another event.
To be honest, I don’t have time to say yes to most of these, but it’s the holidays so I feel like we should make our best effort. In an attempt to save myself some time this holiday season I decided to simplify our holiday baking and cookie making. This year we will be making 1-2 of our favorite holiday cookies, but everything else will be super easy recipes.
Luckily easy doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice taste! These White Chocolate Walnut Caramels are the perfect holiday gift for neighbors, hostess gifts, or even your cookie exchange! They taste amazing, and look like you put a lot of effort into them. No one has to know they are effortless, unless they read my blog and then you are busted. But they will likely have a mouth full of White Chocolate Walnut Caramel goodness and no one will care either way!
- 24 caramel squares, wrapped (I like these delicious vanilla caramel squares)
- 12 ounces white chocolate chips
- ½ cup crushed walnut topping
- Parchment Paper
- Candy sticks or toothpicks
- Melting pot
- Get your baking sheet ready with parchment paper cut to the size of your baking sheet.
- If you have a melting pot, set it to medium high heat and add your white chocolate chips. Stir occasionally until every last chip is melted. Reduce the melting pot to warm so that the chocolate chips stay melted and doesn’t harden.
- If you do not have a melting pot you can melt the chips in a double boiler over the stove or in the microwave, 25 seconds at a time.
- Unwrap all of the caramel squares and push candy sticks into the centers. Toothpicks can also be used, but this is to make the chocolate dipping process less messy.
- Dip caramel squares into the melted white chocolate, making sure to cover tops and sides. Place caramel square on parchment paper and pull the candy sticks out of the caramel squares. Before chocolate begins drying top the white chocolate with walnut pieces.
- Allow the walnuts to harden into the chocolate, and once the chocolate is completely hardened peel them away from the parchment paper.
Walnut caramel squares can be stored in a sealed bag or tin for up to two weeks so whether you are gifting them or exchanging them at a cookie party, you know everyone will have plenty of time to enjoy these delicious White Chocolate Walnut Caramels! I always find the cutest holiday tins at the dollar store or you can use these!
