Fleur de Sel Caramels

Makes 16 pieces


½ cup sugar

¼ cup corn syrup

5 Tablespoons butter

1 ½ cup heavy cream

1 Tablespoon Fleur de sel

½ teaspoon vanilla extract


1. Line the bottom of a 8-inch square baking pan with greased parchment paper.

2. In a deep sauce pan combine the sugar, corn syrup and ½ cup water. Bring to boil over medium high     heat. Continue to boil until the caramel is a warm golden brown color. Don’t stir – just swirl the pan to mix, and watch carefully as it can burn quickly towards the end.

3. In the meantime, heat together the cream, butter and one teaspoon of fleur de sel, set aside.
4. When the caramelized sugar is golden brown, slowly add the hot cream mixture to the caramel – it will boil up violently.
5. Stir in the vanilla with a wood spoon and cook over medium heat for 5 – 10 minutes, until the mixture reaches 248˚ (firm ball) on a candy thermometer.
6. Very carefully pour the caramel into the prepared pan and refrigerate until firm.
7. When the caramels are cool, use the parchment paper to pry the sheet from the pan onto a cutting board.

8. Genly cut the caramels into one inch pieces, sprinkle with the remaining fleur de sel and wrap or serve.
