I'm making about 40 (8oz) jars of salted caramel hot cocoa mix, and I need more caramel! Any suggestions on how to infuse this flavor easily? So far I've turned 5lbs of sugar into caramel and ground to a powder to include in the mix, but I barely taste the caramel! Any idea how many more pounds of sugar I would need? My hands are getting cut up from caramel shards and might not be able to handle another 5lbs.
I hear there are such things as caramel chips, but are they readily available (would need to get in next 1-2 days), and more importantly... Are they tasty and caramelly?
