Easy Salted caramel

Prep time 5 minutes cooking
time 10-15 minutes

 

60g butter 
395g can sweetened condensed milk 
2 Tbsp maple syrup

2 Tbsp brown sugar

Sea salt to serve  

 

1 In a heavy-based saucepan
combine butter, condensed milk, syrup and brown sugar.  Cook and stir over
low heat for 5 minutes or until melted and combined. Increase heat to medium.
Cook, stirring constantly, for 8 minutes or until mixture thickens and becomes
hard to stir,you  should  be able to easily roll it into balls. Allow
to cool completely so you don’t burn your fingers!!  

2 Line a tray with baking
paper. When cool enough to handle, roll 1 tablespoon of mixture into a ball and
shape with your fingers into small cubes. These can be any size you like, or
you could even leave them as balls.

Sprinkle with sea salt and
serve.

This caramel is the base I use
for all my caramel slices, tarts etc . It sets well but also cooks well and can
be mixed with nuts,  rice bubbles, or placed on top of brownies for a
indulgent slice.

 if
you are using it as a layer in a caramel slice,remove it from the heat, after
 about 8 minutes or till its thick,  don’t wait for it to be hard to
stir, as it will be too thick for your slice.
