Fleur De Sel Honey Caramel Recipe With No Corn Syrup

Sew Creative's Fleur De Sel Honey Caramel Recipe No Corn Syrup

Mmmmmm. Fleur De Sel Caramels… is there anything yummier? The perfect mix of salty and sweet. I know that whenever I see a dessert that has sea salt in it I have to give it a try. These caramels are smooth, buttery, sweet and salty. They make great gifts for Valentine’s Day, Christmas, Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, Easter, Teacher Appreciation, etc. and they are easy to make. I love this recipe because it contains no corn syrup.

Fleur De Sel Honey Caramel Recipe With No Corn Syrup

Ingredients:

-3 cups of sugar

-1 cup of honey

-2 tablespoons of pure vanilla extract

-1 cup of butter

-2 cups of heavy cream

-Sea Salt (I used Red Hawaiian Sea Salt)

Special Materials:

-Candy Thermometer

-Baking Sheet (13″X9″ with edge)

-Parchment Paper

-Large Pot

-Small Saucepan

Directions:

1. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Spray the parchment paper with non-stick spray or brush lightly with oil.

2. Put cream and butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Add 1 teaspoons of sea salt. Bring to a simmer.

3. While cream is being brought to a simmer, combine sugar, honey and vanilla in a large pot. Heat over medium heat. Stir until sugar has dissolved and you are left with a liquid. Bring mixture to a low boil, swirling pan, until mixture has reached a warm golden brown color.

4.  Slowly add cream mixture to your pot (again be careful as the caramel will react and bubble up when you add the cream). Using a wooden spoon, stir  to incorporate the cream into the caramel.

5. Using your candy thermometer bring your caramel mixture to a temperature of 248 degrees F.

6. When caramel has reached 248 F, very carefully pour the caramel onto your sheet pan. Leave to set for 2 hours.

7. Sprinkle caramels with sea salt, cut into pieces and wrap in square pieces of parchment paper.

I cut my caramels on the small side (1/2″ X 1″) and I got about 160 caramels out of this recipe. If that’s too many caramels for you this recipe can easily be halved.

Enjoy!

I hope you enjoy this Fleur De Sel Honey Caramel Recipe With No Corn Syrup. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask. I have heard that at some extreme elevations you may need to bring your caramel to a different temperature to set properly. 248 degrees F seems to be the standard temperature for caramels though.

Tell me… have you ever made homemade candy? Which do you enjoy more, salty or sweet?

    Woah, those sound yummy. I will admit though, that making caramel scares me a bit – I’m terrified of burning the sugar and wrecking my pans. ;)

    You make it seem so simple! I have never made my own candy but am lining up to borrow some of my Gran’s old bakery items. Might have to give this a go.

    My fave!! I have a question – what is different about a candy thermometer? While I spend more money then I care to admit in the baking/decorating section at michaels, I’ve never tried candy!

      Hi Heather,

      You may be able to use a regular cooking thermometer as well. Candy thermometers are specifically made for making candy and deep frying. They typically go to a higher temperatures than a meat thermometer would go to. As long as your thermometer goes high enough I would give it a try. We got our candy thermometer at Home Outfitters and I think it was around $6.00.

    Mmmmm oh yum ! I have a real love of sweet and salty and this treat is very enticing. As a novice in the kitchen, what degree of talent does it take to make these treats come out nicely?

      Hi Andrea,

      They certainly are delicious. My first thought was to say that they take no degree of talent… lol. Really they are pretty simple. I would say that you want to have uninterrupted time to make them. The hardest part I would say is making sure that you don’t burn the sugar honey mixture when caramelizing (as long as you keep it on a relatively low temperature, keep an eye on it and swirl often this shouldn’t be a problem). Other two parts to keep an eye on are to make sure your pot doesn’t overflow when you add the butter and cream mixture (because it boils up) so make sure you add it slowly. And then keep and eye on it when you are bringing the temperature up to 248.

      Honestly I don’t consider myself an expert chef. I like things that I can make easily. I’m always surprised how easy these caramels are to make when I make them. Who would think you can make caramels at home? I do cook a lot though. I’d love for you to make them and tell me how easy it is for a kitchen novice to make them. :)

      Just make sure you have no kids underfoot when you are making them and you should be good to go!

      Best Wishes,

      Crystal

    Oh man oh man. If I bought a thermometer it would mean making these, and then homemade marshmallows and then…
    I’m scared.
    And starving.
    (Thank you)

      Hee, hee. You crack me up Brooke. Get a candy thermometer. Less than $10 at Home Outfitters and you can make delicious creations like this. I think I may try marshmallows next.

      Best Wishes,

      Crystal
