How to: Homemade Salted Caramels

I took on the project of making salted caramels the other night as I was desperately craving them, but Dean and Deluca was already closed.  Though not every piece looked perfectly beautiful, they tasted perfectly beautiful.  If you’re familiar with the process of using a candy thermometer, this isn’t too hard of a task, but is a little messy.

I used a combination of a couple of recipes I found… The first from Martha Stewart and the other from Gourmet. Below is the method/temperatures that I found worked best.

Homemade Salted Caramels

1 cup heavy cream
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
1 teaspoon fleur de sel
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup water
