Time for another Christmas box post!
At the suggestion of my Pilates instructor, Emilia, I made salted caramel toffees, using this recipe from Not So Humble Pie.
Mrs Humble's recipe was to make soft caramels; unfortunately, I knew early on that I was going to get hard caramels, so I made sure that I scored the mixture a number of times while it was setting so that I could cut it into squares later.
I had actually wanted soft caramels, so in a fit of pique, I refused to waste my fleur de sel on top of the toffees, and just used ordinary sea salt flakes.
Hard or soft, these are delicious - the sweet and the salt go well together - make them!
