Salted Maple Caramels

You’ve heard of salted caramels, right? Don’t you just love the sweet and salty combination? Wouldn’t you like to try salted maple caramels? Do you want your home to smell like a maple syrup factory, making you feel like you’re just a little elf at work? Are you craving something so buttery and rich with flavors of caramel, maple, and a hint of sea salt? Do you want to be the star among your friends when you show up at a dinner party with cute little caramel bundles of goodness? Have you ever wished that your culinary triumph would prompt an incredibly satisfied friend to high five you like in an 80’s movie freeze frame ending?

If you answered “no” to any of these questions, then I’m afraid we can’t be friends. Our journey ends here. No salty sweet goodness. No 80’s high five. You're really missing out. But it's better this way – just means more salted maple caramels for me! You probably wouldn't want to high five me anyway. My hands are still sticky from eating all of these tasty salted maple caramels...our hands would have stuck together.

How did you become such good and creative chef?!

Thank you so much for that compliment! I think that it's a combination of watching my mom cook, a good bit of traveling, and watching tons of cooking shows. But I'm still learning every day :)

I cannot wait to try these. I have recently made my own maple syrup and have wondered what to do with some of it. Now I know. All I need is heavy cream and sea salt. I am going to try some colored sea salt. I think it will be pretty. I have seen colored sea salt at TJ Maxx. Hope it turns out for me.

Did you keep whisking while waiting for the temp to reach 240?

I made these last week as a trial for my holiday goodie trays. Making my second batch now and all of the teachers I shared them with said they were the best caramels they ever had.
