Serves: 40 caramels
 
Dark chocolate caramels made with honey and sprinkled with sea salt
Ingredients
  • 200ml/6.75 oz heavy whipping cream
  • 250g/8.8oz sugar
  • 100g/3.5oz honey
  • 10g/.35oz butter
  • 200g/7.05 oz dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1 tsp. fleur de sel (or coarse sea salt)
Instructions
  1. Combine the sugar and cream in a 3 qt saucepan and put it on medium heat. Once it starts to bubble, cook for 5 minutes.
  2. Add chocolate, butter and honey and continue to cook on medium heat, stirring continuously, until it reaches 120C/248F (firm-ball) on a candy thermometer. This will take about 10-15 minutes, depending on your stove.
  3. Transfer the chocolate mixture to an 8"x8" pan lined with parchment paper.
  4. Sprinkle with salt and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes or allow to sit at a cool room temperature overnight until firm.
  5. Cut the caramels into small pieces. If your knife sticks to the caramels, brush it lightly with a neutral oil such as canola oil. This will prevent sticking.
  6. Wrap each piece in wax paper.
