Oh. My. Goodness. These caramels that I made last night are better than any I have had in 38 years. I bought this recipe book recently because I happened to flip to the Fleur De Sel Caramel recipe and I knew I would make them. Not think about it, MAKE them.
Now I must tell you, when the recipe says you'll be wisking the caramel for 40 minutes...they're not kidding. That was the only downside to making them. I used a candy thermometer for the first time and so it was really easy to know when it hit 246 F. The Fleur De Sel is what makes you want to do cart wheels...the salt is the perfect compliment to the sweet caramel.
If I could share with all of you I would, they're that good. Let me know if you make some too and how you liked them!
