Soft Chocolate Caramels

Prep Time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: 30 minutes

pan

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/2 cups light whipping cream
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 3 oz semi sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Candy thermometer

Instructions

Prepare an 8 x 4 or 8 x 8 pan by lightly buttering it. Set aside from now.

Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil on low heat, stirring frequently to blend. Avoid stirring it after that. It may foam as the proteins in the whipping cream cook, remove from heat for a moment if it risks spilling over, then lower heat.

Cook until the mixture reaches 246 F.

Pour into the prepared loaf pan (don't worry about scraping the saucepan). Let stand until set, about 1 hour.

Cut into bite sized pieces and enjoy! They're pretty wrapped individually in wax paper.
