Fleur de Sel Caramels

Posted April 13th, 2010

I am - and always will be a fan of all things chocolate. But when caramel is done right, there's really nothing better. I'm consistently disappointed with the caramel products readily available, whether it's an impossibly chewy Milk Dud or a Sugar Daddy that's hard as a rock. I've tried homemade caramels before from little sweet shops, but I had never considered making my own until I stumbled across Mark Bitman's recipe. The result was perfectly chewy caramels with just enough salt to bring out the complex flavors of butter, cream and sugar.
