INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

  1. Prepare an 8×8 inch pan with parchment paper with the edges of the parchment hanging over two of the sides. This allows for easy removal once caramels have cooled.
  2. In a heavy bottomed pot, such as enameled cast iron, combine all caramel topping ingredients except for the extract. Bring to a boil and stir until sugars are dissolved and the mixture is well combined. Using a candy thermometer, watch for 230°F. Allow to boil at this temp for several minutes, until candy begins to climb over 235°F. Stir continuously. Remove from heat and stir in the extract. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes, then pour onto prepared parchment.  Sprinkle with sea salt, if desired. Once chilled, cut into pieces and wrap in wax paper or parchment squares.
