What's a good way to get over a craving? Overdose on it.

On a recent baking days, we discovered the irresistible appeal of sea salt and caramel with these thumbprints from Martha Stewart. We decided to dedicate our next baking day to the magic combination. 

Inspired by Pinterest and sites such as this, we were eventually able to narrow our recipe list down to a single afternoon of baking. 

Now all of the recipes went about making the caramel differently, and we had a few sticky situations—but we were able to pull ourselves together to enjoy baking success.

The highlight of the day was definitely the 6-layer caramel chocolate masterpiece that Amanda slaved over for quite some time. The frosting alone contained a pound of chocolate, and it put me in a food coma for several hours. 

This is what's under the chocolate. You're allowed to use O.M.G. here. 

If' your mouth is watering and you're feeling somewhat masochistic, the recipe, also a martha, can be found here. Ours didn't turn out quite as photogenic as Miss Stewart's, but that doesn't seem to have effected the taste!
