Caramels are one of my favorite treats, and when dipped in chocolate and topped with sea salt, they are even better! While I've made caramel from scratch before (and have the scars to prove it), this makes the process really easy and kid friendly. Whip up a batch of these to share with teachers and friends for Valentine's Day! That is, if you can eat from either eating the bag of caramels (which I'm likely to do) or eat the chocolate dipped ones first.
Adapted from Kraft Canada
1 package of Kraft Caramels
5 squares of 70% Cacao Dark Chocolate, melted
1 Tbsp sea salt
Unwrap all the caramels and dip them gently into the chocolate, setting to dry on a waxed paper lined baking sheet. Kraft recommends that you use a toothpick to handle the caramels, but I used two forks. Sprinkle the caramels with salt while the chocolate is still wet.
Allow the caramels to set, putting them in the fridge to speed it up.
Makes about 32
Disclosure: Kraft sent me a bunch of products to write about 3 desserts with. These weren't one of the original desserts, but it turned out well and I added them to the mix. I highly recommend them!
