shelf life of homemade caramels???
My daughter is getting married in August, and she has asked me to make my homemade caramels for wedding favors. (I was so flattered!)
Usually I make these for Christmas and they don't take long to disappear.
We were making plans to be sure everything goes smoothly for the wedding ---
Making and wrapping hundreds of candies will surely be a labor of love. My daughter has promised to help with the wrapping but doesn't want to do this even a week before the wedding. I'm sure she will be very busy with the many other details.
I'd really like to have these done some time before the wedding.
How long can I keep homemade candy with out spoilage or loss to flavor and texture?
My recipe contains both butter and cream. I think these are the only ingredients I would worry about as far as food safety??
Thanks in advance for any advice!
