How to Make Anti-Valentine's Day Salted Caramels

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
