Caramels à la Fleur de Sel

Caramels à la Fleur de Sel

 1/2 cup sugar
 1/2 cup acacia honey  
 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
 5 Tbsp sweet butter
 1 tsp fleur de sel de Guérande  

In a heavy saucepan on low heat, melt sugar, honey and 1/2 cup of water. Stir and bring to a boil until caramel takes a nice amber color. Bring cream to a boil. Add to the mix, stirring until smooth and caramel thickens. Take off the heat. Mix in butter and fleur de sel. Check consistency (if you like harder caramels, cook a little longer). Pour hot mix onto a buttered piece of marble or into a rectangular pan lined with aluminum foil. When caramel is almost cool, cut into small squares and wrap individually in foil or waxed paper. Keep in a sealed jar or tin. Makes 40
