A basic caramel recipe gets a little kick in the pants with some seasalt. These are such a sweet little treat! Very easy to make...if you have never attempted candy making before...these are the ones to try!
1 cup heavy cream
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 and 1/4 teaspoon salt (use only 1/4 if making sea salt free)
Melt butter, cream and salt (if making sea free…just add 1/4 tsp of salt instead). Set aside. (For a creamier caramel add 1/3 c more cream)
Large pan, combine water, corn syrup and sugar. Stir to combine. Then leave it alone. Gentle boil until it reaches 250-255 on a candy thermometer.
Turn heat off. Slowly whisk in the cream mixture into sugar. Mixture will foam up and bubble…just keep whisking until all cream is incorporated. Stop whisking and heat again until thermometer reaches 250. Don’t stir at all.
Remove from heat and quickly whisk in vanilla. Pour into prepared pan. Lightly sprinkle with course salt. Let cool uncovered for a day and cut up :) Wrap into wax paper.
