Quick, simple and tasty, but as sugarpea mentioned, the hardened caramel kinda spoils the fun. Sorry, but I could honestly rate this only 2 stars, no offense intended.

The oranges and pineapple are indeed very pretty but the "carmel" doesn't materialize as written. Once it cools, it hardens, and once it hardens it stays hardened.
