206181Recently we’ve had a really popular trend in an easy, delicious, old-fashioned candy. Homemade caramel, sprinkled with sea salt is now available at several of the gourmet candy shops in our area. This tasty treat is irresistible for its contrasting combination of sweet and salty. If you can make caramel by following the recipe that I posted for caramel apples (http://www.chefjessicabright.com/classic-caramel-recipe-a-fun-fall-treat-that-is-perfect-for-dipping-apples.html) then you can easily make these as well.
3548387To make sea salt caramels follow the caramel recipe but while it cooks line a heatproof container with parchment paper. After the caramel reaches the correct temperature pour it in the container until it is an inch thick. Allow the caramel to cool and set; while it is still slightly tacky sprinkle generously with sea salt. Carefully lift the paper from the container and peel it off the piece of caramel. Place the caramel on a cutting board and with a large knife cut into the desired size pieces.
