Every Thanksgiving my mom likes to have little treats for all our guests at the dinner table. This year I decided to make salted caramels after my friend kept talking about them. Here's the recipe I used. I wasn't planning on doing a blog post, but I just started taking pics of the process since I never make candy. The first batch never really set, so I tried it a second time cooking it longer at 257 degrees, and they turned out great. It was neat seeing the mixture starting to look like caramel while it was cooking. The best part was drizzling the chocolate over the caramels once they were cool & cut. I lightly sprinkled pink Himalayan salt on top when the chocolate was still warm. While shopping at World Market for Thanksgiving supplies, I found this holiday parchment paper. It's not quite the right colors for our Thanksgiving table, but I found it was much easier to use for wrapping instead of normal white parchment paper.
These would also make great Christmas gifts. A bunch of them in bags with handmade labels would be just perfect for the holidays. The only thing is they taste to good to keep around the house.
These look yummy!
