    What is 10% cream?

    I did a search for this topic, but didn't find exactly what I was looking for. I want to make this dessert for my wife on Valentine's Day, but I do not know what 10% cream in the ingredients is referring to. I went to the store and see heavy cream and light cream...but am not sure which to choose.

    Thanks for helping me out!

    You probably know it as "half-and-half". It has 10% milkfat.

    By the way, so sweet of you to be cooking for DW! I'm sure she'll LOVE it.

    thanks! i actually cook quite often...the holidays are my treat. i also love to bake cookies, brownies (her fav), etc. she usually is busy with her hobbies (knitting, sewing, her website, etc). both of are masters students woring full-time, so we alternate the cooking throughout the week.

    if interested, i can post the recipe here that i am looking to make. i got it from a from a mailing from a spa in Canada that i am hoping to take her for an extended weekend. was hoping that would be for v-day, but maybe her b-day instead as business travel has me out of town.

    Yumm! Thanks for the recipe! My DH loves caramel... maybe I'll make this for him, too!

    Out of curiosity, what's the spa? Might be good to keep in my list of places to check out.
