I think homemade gifts are best. Why not make these Caramels With Fleur de Sel for Father’s Day?



  • 1 Cup Heavy Cream
  • 5 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 1 1/2 Cups Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Light Corn Syrup
  • 1/4 Cup Water
  • 2 Three-Finger Pinches Fleur de Sel (For Finishing)
  1. Line an 8x8 inch square dish with parchment paper or wax paper. Slightly oil the paper.
  2. Combine butter and heavy cream in a small-size saucepan on a low heat until it begins to simmer. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. In a large-size saucepan, melt sugar, water, and corn syrup together on a medium-high heat, until mixture dissolves, begins to bubble and turns slightly brown in color. Should be 350 degrees on a candy thermometer. Remove from heat and gently stir in cream mixture.
  4. Place back on burner and boil, stirring vigorously, until the mixture reaches 248 degrees (about 10 minutes. Pour into prepared 8x8 dish, then let sit at room temperature until cooled and slightly firm.
  5. After 1 1/2 hours, invert dish onto cutting board. Peel off parchment/wax paper and cut into 1x2 inch rectangles. Sprinkle with fleur de sel and wrap in 4x5 inch wax paper squares.
