Salted Chocolate Covered Caramels are made with just three simple ingredients and are pretty fool proof!  Is there a better combination than chocolate and caramel?

Ingredients
  • 1 batch homemade soft caramels (about 80 bite-size caramels)
  • 6 7 ounce Hershey's chocolate bars (or other high quality chocolate bar for melting)
  • sea salt for topping
Instructions
  1. Make caramels according to instructions and allow to refrigerate overnight. Cut into bite-size squares.
  2. Place a large piece of parchment paper on top of a large jelly roll pan or cooking sheet.
  3. Break up chocolate into pieces in a large microwave-safe bowl. 

  4. Microwave at half power for about 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until the chocolate is melted and smooth. 

  5. Use a toothpick or a fork to coat the caramels in chocolate. Let excess chocolate drip off before setting them on the parchment paper.

  6. Allow to set for 2-3 minutes before sprinkling sea salt on each. 

  7. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Enjoy! Store extras in the fridge or at room temperature. (I like to refrigerate mine).
