Salted Caramel HEAVEN

I LOVE caramel!!!...anything caramel!!!
I have very little experience in candy making and ordered this candy thermometer around Christmas time. I thought homemade caramels would be a great way to break it in!
A couple of my girlfriends and I spent the day making homemade marshmallows and salted caramel {we used this recipe}.

Only 6 ingredients...5 if you forget vanilla like us!

Caramel dipping sauce for the kiddos at 235 degrees!

mmm....salt & caramel....AMAZING!
This was our harder batch. 245 degrees.

We wrapped these little bits of LOVE in brown wax paper...cute right!

The softer batch {240ish degrees} was wrapped around homemade marshmallows and sprinkled with just a dash of salty goodness!

They were then packed up in takeout boxes, wrapped in twine, and adorned with a cute little label. I gave them away so fast I forgot to take a picture of the finished product!!

Make some this weekend. I bet you even have most of the ingredients!!
