Welcome back! This time I'm going to share how to make some yummy Sea Salt Caramels!
- 2 Cups Sugar
- 1 Cup Corn Syrup
- 2 Cups Heavy Cream
- 1/2 Cup of Butter
- 1/2 tsp. French Grey Sea Salt + extra for topping.
- 1 tsp Vanilla
Add sugar, corn syrup, 1 Cup of the cream, butter & 1/2 tsp Sea Salt into heavy saucepan. You'll want to use a large one as it will bubble up. Over med-high heat while stirring occasionally, bring to a boil. Meanwhile, warm the rest of cream in another saucepan. Once mixture has come to a boil, slowly stir in the warmed cream. Continue cooking but not stirring. It will bubble & brown. This takes a bit of time 30-45 minutes. Cook until candy thermometer reaches 242 degrees F/116 C or candy forms into soft ball when dropped into cold water.
Pour, don't scrape, into greased 9x13 pan. I used greased parchment paper to easily lift out. Sprinkle top with crushed sea salt. Once cooled, cut into 1.5 x .5 inch pieces and wrap with wax paper, then paper strips. Tuck into a cute container and give a yummy Holiday treat to someone sweet!
Here is a sheet of printable tags to use. Using a 1 1/2 inch scalloped circle punch looks too cute!
