Ingredients

  • 1 cup goat milk butter
  • 2 cups pure wildflower honey
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup light-brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon Maldon sea salt, for sprinkling

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Line bottom and sides of a 9-inch square pan with parchment paper; set aside.

  2. Step 2

    Melt butter in a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat. Add honey, cream, and sugar; stir to combine. Cook, stirring frequently, until mixture comes to a boil.

  3. Step 3

    Continue boiling, stirring frequently, until mixture reaches 250 degrees on a candy thermometer, 45 to 60 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla; pour into prepared pan. Let cool for 1 hour; sprinkle with sea salt. Let cool completely, overnight.

  4. Step 4

    Turn caramels out onto a cutting board; remove parchment paper. Using a sharp knife, cut caramels into 1-inch squares; wrap each in wax paper. Caramels will keep in an airtight container, refrigerated, for up to 1 month. Caramels will soften at room temperature or stay firm if kept chilled.

    You can get the Meyenberg goat butter at Whole Foods and on amazon.com. I think you may also be able to order from the company's website as well!

    I added a touch of cinnamon to mine. My next batch I'm going to use infused honey, maybe rose petal or lavender honey.
