How to make the ultimate sexy food -- edible lingerie

Looking for an ooey, gooey, sweet and sexy way to treat your lover? How about a luscious piece of caramel lingerie? Just in time for the flavors of fall, you can whet your lover’s appetite – or give him the ultimate after-dinner dessert – with indulgent edible lingerie that you made yourself. Better than caramel apples, and just as easy to make, caramel lingerie will sweeten your evening and heat up your romance. Here’s how.

Caramel Lingerie

10-inch plastic coated icing bags
A variety of small opening decorating tips for icing
Wax paper
Lingerie, to use a template
Felt-tip pen

1 stick butter
1-1/8 cups light brown sugar
1/2 cup dark Karo syrup
1/2 cup condensed milk
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. To create a template, stretch a piece of lingerie over a sheet of wax paper and trace its outline with a felt tip pen. Fold the paper or mat in half to check that its shape is symmetrical. Attach the smallest tip to a nonstick icing bag and set aside.

2. To concoct the caramel, combine the butter and sugar in a double boiler or a heavy-bottomed pan. Add the Karo syrup and evaporated milk. Stirring constantly, cook over low heat until the mixture starts to thicken. Test the thickness by spooning threads of it onto a piece of wax paper.

3. Let mixture cook for 5 minutes – the caramel should be pliable, but not too liquidy. Caramel should be runny enough to pass through the small tip of the icing bag but thick enough to hold its shape.

4. Holding the icing bag in a dish towel to prevent it from burning your hands, spoon about 1/2 cup of hot caramel in the bag. Press top of bag together and fold or twist it to close. Squeezing from the top down, drizzle the caramel in a lacy pattern within your lingerie template on the wax paper.
