Pecan & Salted Caramel Candies


I can't stop making these! My family keeps eating them before I can get them in gift tins. I used a smoked sea salt on the top and it truly makes the candy unforgettable.

Ingredients:
  • 2/3 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 4-ounce block of caramel, cut into 16 pieces; or 16 caramel candies
  • 16 bittersweet chocolate disks (1″ to 1 1/2″ disks)
  • a pinch of Fleur de Sel or other sea salt, to garnish each candy

Instructions:
  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F.
  2. Divide the pecans into 16 small piles on a parchment-lined or lightly greased baking sheet (a scant 2 teaspoons pecans each).
  3. Flatten each caramel cube into the size of a half dollar, and place on the pecans.
  4. Heat in the oven for 2 to 3 minutes, until the caramel softens and begins to melt.
  5. Remove from the oven; wait 1 minute, then top each cluster with one disk of chocolate, pressing it into the softened caramel gently.
  6. Top each candy with a few flakes of Fleur de Sel, or other coarse sea salt.
  7. Allow the caramel and chocolate to cool and set before removing candies from the pan.
