Caramels with Fleur de Sel
Caramels à la Fleur de Sel

Serves: 4 : Makes 40 caramels

In a heavy bottom saucepan, under low heat, melt the sugar, honey and 1/2 cup of water. Stir and bring to a boil until the caramel takes a nice amber color. Bring the cream to a boil and add it to the caramel, stirring until the consistency becomes smooth and the caramel thickens. Take off the heat; mix in the butter and fleur de sel. Check the consistency (if you like harder caramels, cook the mixture a little longer). Pour the hot mixture onto a buttered piece of marble or in a rectangular pan lined with aluminum foil. When the caramel is almost cool, cut into small squares and wrap individually in foil or waxed paper. Keep in a sealed jar or tin.
