Butter Caramels

Actually, I wanted to prepare some chocolate caramels, but I had no glucose at home. Anyway, I thought, I still go for it and use sugar instead, as I have already replaced it in the past in other recipes. Though, I was pretty sure that it might not work out this time, but I still tried. The result was a delicious chocolate-caramel cream, that made an awesome spread on a slice of bread, but well, that was not what I wanted.

Of course, I did not give up and searched for another recipe, this time without glucose, but the result turned to be the complete opposite of the other. I ended up with hard chocolate-caramel like candy, that tastes good, but it is not the real stuff. So after that, I decided to make some normal butter caramels, this time not salted. These are so delicious! Be careful when wrapping, because these are addictive! In my case one ended up in a wrap, the other in my mouth...

3 tablespoon butter
360 ml cream
225 g sugar
225 g honey
salt as desired

Cover a baking pan with baking paper or butter it. Mix butter, cream, sugar, honey and salt in a pot and let it melt over medium heat and cook until it reaches 120°C degrees, this is going to take about 30-40 minutes. Stir mixture once in a while, when it has reached the temperature pour it into the baking pan and let it cool for a few hours. As soon as it has the right consistency cut it in pieces and wrap in baking paper or anything else.
