Sunday Bake | Salted Caramels
4 May 2014
Salted Caramels. Oh my. Is there anything better?? I made these caramels as little gifts at Christmas and I've been thinking of them ever since! So the other weekend I figured life was too short and I should just make myself some caramel. That's a valid reason right??
I used a recipe from Shutterbean which you can find here. Tracy who runs Shutterbean has some amazing recipes on there so its definitely worth a look!
The caramels are really easy to make, and use hardly any ingredients too which is always good. You will definitely need a food thermometer though. It also does get superrrrrr hot so be careful!! I learnt my lesson after burning myself last time I made them and genuinely thinking my hand would never not hurt!
But seriously, I urge you to make them! They taste so buttery, creamy, salty, decadent....shall I continue? Or are you already scouring your cupboards for the sugar? ;)
A few notes on the ingredients! As Tracy is American a few changes do need to be made. Corn Syrup is just golden syrup to you and me and heavy cream is simply double cream. For the Salt I really would recommend using Maldon's Sea Salt Flakes (which you can buy in Sainsburys!). They really are the best and you can use them in so many things! If not, any rock salt will do.
Let me know if you make them! I actually made these two weeks ago and have only gotten round to posting now, so I won't lie - I'm tempted to make them again! Why do I have no self control!?!
I hope you're all having a lovely weekend! :)
