fleur de sel caramels

i made these delightful caramels tonight and they came really delicious...
here is the recipe...4 tbs. unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
2 cups sugar
1/2 light corn syrup
pinch salt
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
lightly grease a baking pan.
combine all ingredients except vanilla in a sauce pan. turn on medium low heat. cook stirring occasionally until sugar dissolves.mixture will bubble and darken, cook  and stir until the firm ball stage,(245 degrees). take off the heat and stir in the vanilla and pour into the prepared pan. cool and cut into little pieces with a sharp knife. its best to do this when the caramels aren't too sticky anymore. wrap in waxed paper and place in a sweet!

This reminds me of a caramel recipe that I used to make when I was younger. They were also sooo good. There is nothinglike freshly made caramels.
