30 “DIY” Holiday Gifts in 60 seconds

20 Dec

Let’s take a 60 second walk down “DIY” memory lane. Shall we? It’s been fun my darlings, but I’m officially on a DIY sabbatical until January 11th. For those of you that were unaware of this glorious challenge, let me enlighten you. For the past 30 days I have created a different and lovely gift idea for the holidays. Each gift cost between $10 – $20 to make and you don’t need to be Martha Stewart create them. Please check out my YouTube channel for the complete tutorials on how to make any one of these 30 “DIY” holiday gifts. : ) It’s been super fun making them! I look forward to sharing more DIY projects with you all in the New Year. xoxo 🙂

INGREDIENTS

Recipe adapted from cooking channel

  • 1 cup of raw sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  •  tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon pink Himalaya sea salt

In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine the sugar and water over medium-low heat until the sugar dissolves. Increase the heat and bring to a boil, without stirring. If necessary, use a wet pastry brushto wash down any crystals on the side of the pan. Boil until the syrup is a deep amber color, about 5 to 6 minutes.

Remove the sugar from the heat and carefully whisk in the heavy cream. The mixture will bubble. Stir in the unsalted butter, and salt. Transfer the caramel to a dish and cool.

*Cook’s Note: The salted caramel sauce will keep in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks. Reheat before serving.
