Salted Caramel Dark Chocolate Strawberries

 
I saved this recipe ages ago and have been dying to make them. Can you believe I've never made dipped strawberries?  I especially loved the little bit of sea salt on them.  It was so pretty and they tasted wonderful!  It was a warm day when I made them and the caramel did melt a bit but that didn't stop people from eating them and scooping up all the delicious caramel. 
 
 
 


Salted Caramel Dark Chocolate Strawberries
Adaped from Crazy Daisy

20 - 25 strawberries, depending on size
40 caramels, unwrapped (put the kids to work)
3 tbsp. whipping cream
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cups dark chocolate chips
Sea Salt

Spread wax paper over the counter or on cookie sheets and spray with cooking spray.  Rinse strawberries. Pat them dry with peper towels.  The caramel will not stick to wet strawberries.

Microwave the caramels, cream and salt in the microwave for 2 1/2 - 3 1/2 minutes until smooth, stirring every minute.  Dip strawberries half way into caramel mixture.  Place on prepared wax paper. 

Place chocolate chips into a zip loc bag. Microwave for 30 seconds.  Take bag from microwave and use fingers to knead chips.  Repear until chocolate is melted. Cut a small piece of the corner of the bag and drizzle chocolate over strawberries.  Sprinkle with just a touch of sea salt. 

Let stand about 10 - 15 minutes until set.  Serve immediately or cover and chill.

  6. These look awesome. I would never have thought of using caramel, I usually dip in chocolate, or Nutella and call it a day. Strawberry season is here soon in India, will try :)
