Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels


Chocolate, sea salt and caramel are one of my absolute favourite flavour combinations. I have a severe weakness in shops when I see anything with salted caramel on the label! I have come up with these absolutely sinful (not really) chocolate covered salted caramels that would make a great after dinner treat, or even a great Christmas present for someone special. Keep an eye out for an upcoming post I have on Edible Homemade Christmas Gifts. 

Ingredients:

200g dates
3tbsp almond butter
2 tbsp honey/agave syrup
1 tsp sea salt, plus extra for decoration
175g dark chocolate

Method:

1. Soak the dates in boiling water for about 5 minutes, then drain the liquid off and discard.




2. Place all the ingredients except the chocolate into a food processor or blender and mix until smooth. 



3. Place the mix into a bowl and refrigerate for about 30 minutes to let it harden a little so it can be easily formed into balls.

4. I use a small scooper to make even sized balls, but a teaspoon will also work. Place them back in the fridge while you melt the chocolate.

This is the small scooper I use for making the caramels all the same size



5. Melt the chocolate over a bain marie and then let cool for a few minutes. 



6. Cover all the caramels with the chocolate and place on a tray covered with greaseproof paper. Sprinkle each caramel with sea salt.
