Sea Salt Caramels

Difficulty

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 2 hours 30 minutes

2 pounds

Ingredients

1-1/2 cups Karo® Light OR Dark Corn Syrup

2 cups heavy OR whipping cream, divided

1 cup milk

2 cups sugar

1/4 teaspoon Spice Islands® Fine Grind Sea Salt

1 tablespoon Spice Islands® Pure Vanilla Extract

1/2 teaspoon Spice Islands® Coarse Grind Sea Salt

Instructions

Line an 8- or 9-inch square pan with foil (leave a 1-inch overhang on 2 sides) and spray with cooking spray.

Combine corn syrup, 1 cup cream, milk, sugar and salt in a 4-quart saucepan. Bring to boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally.

Reduce heat to medium-low and continue cooking (at a low boil) and stirring occasionally until temperature on candy thermometer reaches 234°F or small amount of mixture dropped into very cold water forms a soft ball which flattens on removal.  This will take about 40 minutes.

Gradually add remaining 1 cup cream in a thin steady stream, stirring constantly.

Continue cooking over medium-low heat, stirring frequently until temperature on candy thermometer reaches 244°F or small amount of mixture dropped into very cold water forms a firm ball which does not flatten on removal. This will take about 30 minutes.  Remove from heat.

Stir in vanilla. Pour into prepared pan. (NOTE: Do NOT scrape side of saucepan.) Place on wire rack and cool 1 hour.  Sprinkle top evenly with sea salt. 

Lift cooled candy from pan using foil.  Cut into 1-inch squares. Wrap squares individually in waxed paper or plastic wrap. Store in tightly-covered container.
