Happy Monday! Today I'm going to share a recipe I shared on Steph's blog a few months ago. In case you missed it, these salted caramel bites are worth mentioning again and again, and again.
1/2 small can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
dash of salt
3/4 honey or white corn syrup (I used honey)
Sea salt or kosher salt
*Glass pan, buttered (you can use a smaller pan for thicker caramels, it doesn't really matter what size you use)
Add all ingredients (except sea salt) to large pan on medium heat. Stir constantly. Once the mixture starts to boil (about 10-15 minutes) stick the candy thermometer in. Once the mixture reaches 240 degrees Fahrenheit give the mixture one last stir and pour into buttered pan. Let cool (I stuck mine in the fridge because I'm impatient). Once the caramels are almost cool, sprinkle with sea salt. (This is not necessary... I just like the flavor the salt creates against the sweetness of the caramel)
Once cool, cut into small pieces. Roll up in wax paper if desired.
eat the whole pan yourself ENJOY!!
