Blood Orange and Almond Caramels _WholesomeCook

Every now and again I get a craving for an old-fashioned chewy caramel treat, but to be honest, I can never go back to store-bought fudge or caramels because the amount of processed sugar in those scares me a little. I’d much rather make these – and they don’t take long, and give them a lower fructose twist by using rice malt syrup instead. It is still considered an added sugar, but because it is free from fructose, it is a better option. As a treat.

The great thing about these is that they keep well in the fridge, a batch lasting at least a couple of weeks.

Blood Orange and Almond Caramels

If you prefer your caramels hard (more like hard candy), cook the rice syrup mixture for a further 5 minutes and divide the caramel between smaller cups. You can find a recipe for Almond Butter in my cookbook.
