Dark Chocolate Salted Caramels

I saw the way the caramel was made on one of Guy’s Grocery game shows and had to re-watch this segment again and again, but in the long run it paid off.

We now can make caramel from nuts and dates! It took a few times but we now have it down. Now cooking! no sugar!

[ingredients title=”Ingredients”]

  • 1 cup of dry roasted salted cashews
  • 1 cup of pitted dates
  • Dark Chocolate melting waffers
  • Sea Salt
  • Raspberry extract

  1. Place the cashews in the food processor and chop then till they turn to powder
  2. Drop the dates in one at a time with the food processor is at full speed
  3. Add a small amount – a dash, a few drops of Raspberry extract
  4. Run the food processor for 5 minutes to combine
  5. Drop the mixture on to greased parchment paper and form in to a square about 3/8 in thick
  6. Wrap the square up in the parchment paper and cool in the refrigerator.
  7. Once cooled, cut into 3/4″ by 3/4″ squares.
  8. Heat the chocolate using the directions on the package
  9. Fill the candy molds 3/4 way with chocolate then add a little sea salt to each
  10. Place a piece of cut caramel in each hole and push down, then cover it up with the extra chocolate

We worked the recipe a few time till we got it right. Every one how has tried them loved them.
