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

Step-By-Step

1combine all ingredients EXCEPT for the sea salt in large saucepan

2heat to medium heat and stir continually until everything is dissolved and incorporated (about 15 minutes and/or 240 degrees F on a candy thermometer)

3remove from heat and pour into a cookie sheet lined with wax or parchment paper

4sprinkle top of caramel generously with sea salt

5let cool (about an hour) then cut into small square or rectangular pieces

6melt dark chocolate slowly over a double boiler, keep heat low making sure water remains a continual simmer

7dip each piece of caramel, face down into the chocolate so that it covers the salt

8cool on a separate cookie sheet also lined with wax or parchment paper (or a cooling rack if you prefer that)

9you 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
