How to make some delicious Soft Vanilla and Pink Salt Caramels - the perfect Christmas gift!
I have read that the ideal temperature for cooking caramels in order to achieve the perfect consistency is 118°C – 244°F. However, I have tried to make a small batch at 118°C – 244°F and the caramels were way too soft, so I cooked the next batch (the ones in the pictures) at 126°C – 260°F. They were still soft, but I managed to cut them nicely and they retained their shape. I suggest you try a small batch first as many factors can influence the perfect consistency (like the altitude you live at for example!).
