Caramel Sea Salt Truffles

Using coarse sea salt crystals on the caramel gives added texture and a burst of flavor to these candies, but fine sea salt can be used as well. You can also add a tiny sprinkle of sea salt to the chocolate coat for a sparkling finish.

Portion Size is Troublesome
December 5, 2012
The suggested "portion size" is really too big considering how chewy the caramel is. Because I noticed this while I was making them, I switched mid-batch. The teaspoon-sized balls were much more manageable.
Word to the wise, if you do not have little sticks or toothpicks to manuever these little guys, the chocolate coating portion will be very tricky (and messy).
The entire process was time consuming, but if you plan ahead, it shouldn't be a problem.
Pros: Will Make Again
Cons: Lengthy

Good introduction to candy making
March 11, 2012
This was the first time I've worked with candy. It really is a simple recipe, but a few mistakes caused me to make it 3 times before I got it right. I highly recommend a digital thermometer with a temperature notification alert. My first batch got too hot and I ended up with a bunch of hard candies! Also, let your chocolate cool for about 15 minutes before dipping. Second batch got melted from hot chocolate. I decorated by drizzling white chocolate over the cooled truffles. I also used a teaspoon to measure each portion instead of a tablespoon. I found them easier to eat. The flavor is fantastic! Enjoy!
Pros: Easy, Impressive, Will Make Again
Cons: very temperature-sensitive
