Salted caramels are a sweet holiday gift that anyone would love. The trick to perfect caramels is to be cognizant of the temperature. This is made easy with a candy thermometer, which can be purchased almost anywhere. You do not want the caramel to surpass 248 degrees F. Also, make sure to brush down the sides of the pan with a wet pastry brush. If any sugar gets the chance to crystallize, you'll have to start from scratch. Follow these tips and you'll be wrapping up salted caramels to give to all your loved ones in no time.
