THE INGREDIENTS LIST:
1 Cup.Of granulated sugar.
1/2 Cup.Of unsalted butter.
1/2 Cup.Of heavy cream.
1 Tsp.Of sea salt.
1 Tsp.Of vanilla extract.
2 Cups.Of semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Additional sea salt for garnish.
Over medium heat, melt granulated sugar in a sturdy saucepan. Until it melts and acquires a dark amber hue, stir it frequently. Caramel burns easily, so take care.
Carefully add the butter after taking the pan off the heat, and mix it in until it melts and is entirely absorbed. Stir constantly, and add the heavy cream slowly.
Make sure the vanilla essence and sea salt are properly distributed by stirring them in. This is what gives caramel its distinctive salty-sweet taste.
Give the caramel mixture a few minutes to cool down before continuing. Then, transfer to a baking dish lined with parchment paper. Wait until it is firm to the touch after setting it to room temperature. When the caramel has hardened, cut it into bite-sized pieces using a sharp knife.
Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl or a double boiler. Carefully dip each caramel square into the melted chocolate using a fork or a candy dipping tool.
Spread the caramels that have been dipped in chocolate on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Salt each caramel nibble with a pinch of sea salt while the chocolate is still warm.
Wait for the salted caramel bits to reach room temperature, then let the chocolate set. If you put some Salted Caramel Bites on a tray, they’ll quickly go.
