Sea Salted Carmel Chews

My friends and I recently took a dessert class and I have to say it was informative and fun!

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 5 tablespoons of unsalted butter cubed
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt, additional used for topping
  • 1 and half cups of sugar
  • 1/4 cup of light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Line an 8x8  baking pan with parchment paper and brush or spray lightly with oil and set aside
  • in a small saucepan, bring heavy cream, butter and salt to a boil. Then remove from heat and set aside
  • In a large saucepan on high heat, stir together sugar, corn syrup and water until sugar is dissolved. Boil without stirring until the mixture turns to a light golden caramel color. (you can gently swirl the entire saucepan occasionally to ensure even heating)
  • Lower heat to a simmer and very carefully pour cream mixture into the saucepan. 
  • Stirring occasionally, bring mixture to 250 F or for candy making aficionados the firm ball stage
  • pour mixture into baking pan and allow to cool completely, about two hours. 
  • 1/2 hours after pouring, sprinkle caramel with more sea salt as desired
  • Remove caramel from baking pan and using a sharp, warm knife, cut the caramel into 2 inch squares
This makes 16-24 chews


  1. Now that looks heavenly! I do love salted caramel.

  2. I love salted caramel. These treats look delicious.

  3. Caramel chews are so dangerous. Is it wrong to want to eat a whole batch of these? Because it's how I feel.
