I saw this little recipe on So, How’s It Taste when I was looking for a fall Caramel recipe, gave it a try and had to share. I think these Salted Whiskey Caramels would make a great hostess gift over the holidays, perfectly chewy and rich in flavor from a bit of whisky, with a nice sprinkle of salt on top.
My only piece of advice after making caramel with many failures, buy a candy thermometer! It really helps and you can find several that are inexpensive. I was given one as a gift that came from Williams & Sonoma and I love it!
Are you ready for the holidays? I have just a few more gifts left to buy and I will be all finished up. All I have to say is Thank God for Amazon- and free shipping.
One thing I always struggle with is giving gifts to neighbors, the trash man, mailman, etc. I usually give gift cards to the local coffee-house, but I like to give a homemade treat along side. This year to be a bit more original than just giving cookies, I am making batches and batches of these Salted Whisky Carmel, wrapping them up and handing them out.
Who wouldn’t enjoy a homemade caramel, with a dash of Jack to liven up the taste? Gotta keep your mailman happy don’t ya’?
TIPS TO SUCCESS:
DO NOT stir your sugar mix, once it turns gold brown pop off the heat immediately.
Slowly add cream this bubbles up violently and is EXTREMELY hot.
Make sure you line your pan with parchment paper, this makes for easy removal from the pan and clean up.
