Irish Atlantic Sea Salt Caramels

Soft and chewy, the ideal gift or afternoon treat!

175ml double cream

1 tsp of vanilla extract

60g butter

2 tsp of Irish Atlantic Sea Salt (any sea salt)

160g golden syrup

 

Baking tin (22cm x 15cm or 9 inch x 6inch)

Parchement paper

Small saucepan

Medium saucepan

Sugar thermometer

Serves 12

Homemade caramels are the ideal edible gift at Christmas time. These ones have a sprinkle of Irish Atlantic Sea Salt which balances and intensifies the caramel flavour. They set to a soft chewy consistency making them fairly irresistible.

 

Grease a baking tin (22cm x 15cm or 9 inch x 6 inch) with a little butter and line with parchment paper. Place the cream, vanilla extract and half the butter in a small sauce pan over a medium high heat. Bring to a steady boil and then remove from the heat and set aside.
In a medium-sized sauce pan, heat the sugar and golden syrup over a medium high heat. Mix together with a wooden spoon until the sugar is completely dissolved. Continue to cook until the mixture reaches 155°C (310°F) on a sugar thermometer. Remove the pan from the heat and stir through the cream mixture.
Place the pan back on the heat and continue to cook until the mixture reaches 127°C (260°F). Stir through the remaining butter until completely incorporated. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking tin and sprinkle evenly all over the top with sea salt. Allow to cool completely before slicing into individual caramels with a knife dipped in boiling water (this allows it to slice without sticking).

TOP TIP

Wrap each one with parchment paper and they will keep in an airtight container for up to one month.

    These were amazing! Well worth the time spent waiting for the sugar to come to the proper temperature. :)
