Sweet ‘n Salt Salted Caramels

Sweet 'n Salt CaramelsThese delightful French caramels have an added dimension of flavor thanks to Sweet ‘n Salt by Casina Rossa, a complex, balanced blend of Italian sea salt, dried and ground fruit, sweet spices, vanilla, chocolate, and grape must.

Ingredients:
1 cup heavy cream
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
1 teaspoon Sweet ‘n Salt by Casina Rossa
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup water

Special equipment: parchment paper; a deep-fat thermomete ~ both available at Poggi Bonsi

Instructions:
Line bottom and sides of an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper, then lightly oil parchment.

Bring cream, butter, and Sweet ‘n Salt by Casina Rossa to a boil in our Beka Cook ‘n Stir, then remove from heat and set aside.

Boil sugar, corn syrup, and water in a 3- to 4-quart heavy saucepan, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Boil, without stirring but gently swirling pan, until mixture is a light golden caramel.

Carefully stir in cream mixture (mixture will bubble up) and simmer, stirring frequently, until caramel registers 248°F on thermometer, 10 to 15 minutes. Pour into baking pan, top with a little more Sweet ‘n Salt by Casina Rossa and cool 2 hours. Cut into 1-inch pieces, then wrap each piece in a 4-inch square of wax paper, twisting 2 ends to close.
