make them sweet and savory
I love the combination of sweet and savory.
I have always been a fan of salted caramels, but I made my own, and became their number one fan. These were so delicious and so easy to make.
I just added a little bit of sea salt, to the caramel. Once it is in the pan, I would sprinkle it over. If you wait to long, you may be to press it in with your hands a little.
We recommend just sprinkling it on top, not mixing it in, to the caramel.
how to clean a sticky caramel pot:
Cleaning up, after making homemade caramels, can be a big pain.
However, there is a simple solution to cleaning up a sticky, caramel covered pan. We recommend filling up the pan or pot with water, and letting it boil.
The caramel will melt and dissolve off the sides.
you can even put in the tip of your candy thermometer towards the end, and let that caramel, melt off as well.
