Recipe of the Day: Buttery Sea Salt Caramels


These were amazingly easy to make and they are wonderful!!! Here is the recipe…

Line a 9 x 9 pan with parchment paper.  In a heavy bottom saucepan combine all of the following ingredients:

  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup castor or white sugar
  • 1 cup Treacle or golden syrup
  • 1 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 6 TBSP butter
  • 2 tsp sea salt

Mix all ingredients over medium heat until all is melted and well combined.  Clip on a candy thermometer and heat to hard ball stage stirring occasionally.  Pour into prepared pan and sit on a wire rack to cool.  When cool to the touch but still pliable, turn out an cut into 1 inch squares with a sharp buttered knife.  Separate the squares where they don’t touch (on the parchment paper) and allow them to cool completely. Wrap individually in waxed paper.

I am happy to tell you

I don’t have a hernia after all.  I spent all day in Shreveport, several hours of which were in a waiting room because my doctor had an unscheduled surgery.  But it wasn’t too bad.  It has been a long time since I spent the day by myself.  Even if it was in the midst of 200,000 other people.  Back to my “thing” ~ just a bit of strained muscle.  Time will heal.

WOW did I come home to lots of comments to read and approve.  I will keep approving them until time for the drawing (noon CST Wednesday).  Thanks for all the input, comments and compliments…and GOOD LUCK to each of you!
