Caramel Fail-Help!!

CraftyLatvian | Dec 19, 2011 10:45 AM

So I am not a baker. I love to cook, but not bake. I pushed myself to the limits this weekend and made a batch of gingerbread caramels from Martha Stewart.
I followed the recipe exactly and ended up with caramels that were way too soft. I temepered my thermometer, had correct measurements, what went wrong? The caramels are really soft, just slightly firmer than a thick sauce.
I am going to make another batch tomorrow but would like some insight as to where I went wrong.
