I’m always looking for a quick and easy treat idea to make, especially during the holidays. There’s nothing better than a tasty treat that can be packaged up and given as a cute gift, or set out for snacking when we have guests over. These Chocolate Covered Caramel Wafers are the perfect easy-to-make treat.
When I say easy-to-make I mean it. I’m a huge fan of semi-homemade cooking and this is that kind of recipe. While shopping at my local World Market Cost Plus store I came across these caramel filled wafers. The hubby loves them and so I’m always sure to snag a bag while I’m there shopping.
Here’s what you will need:
In a microwave safe bowl add a few chunks of melting chocolate. Following the package instructions for melting, typically you heat in 1 minute intervals stirring until melted.
Place each wafer as you dip it on the parchment paper lined tray to set up. Before the chocolate hardens sprinkle a few granules of sea salt. I love a good salty and sweet treat, and this whole combo is amazing!
To package these sweet treats up if you’re giving them as a gift you will need some cute mason jars or treat containers. Fill your jars with your super cute wafers, then add a cute tag and some ribbon or twine.
If you’re keeping these sweet treats for yourself to nibble on when the mood strikes or for a gathering store them in an airtight container.
