...because it's the worst holiday in existence, so I make these every year around this time and celebrate the stupidity of Valentine's Day with my friends :)

Serves:

A LOT!

Prep:

5 Min

Cook:

30 Min

Ingredients

1 1/2 stick
butter
2 1/4 c
brown or granulated sugar (both are good, but i prefer brown sugar)
2 c
light corn syrup
1 c
sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp
vanilla extract
cracked sea salt

Directions Step-By-Step

1
combine all ingredients EXCEPT for the sea salt in large saucepan
2
heat to medium heat and stir continually until everything is dissolved and incorporated (about 15 minutes and/or 240 degrees F on a candy thermometer)
3
remove from heat and pour into a cookie sheet lined with wax or parchment paper
4
sprinkle top of caramel generously with sea salt
5
let cool (about an hour) then cut into small square or rectangular pieces
6
melt dark chocolate slowly over a double boiler, keep heat low making sure water remains a continual simmer
7
dip each piece of caramel, face down into the chocolate so that it covers the salt
8
cool on a separate cookie sheet also lined with wax or parchment paper (or a cooling rack if you prefer that)
9
you don't have to but i like to wrap the treats in small squares of wax paper to give to my friends, also if you are allergic or prefer to not use chocolate i have made this many times without it... it's just as good and you can probably cut larger pieces if you like
