Salted Caramel Strawberries

I know! OH EM GEE.

Salted Caramel Strawberries



20 fresh large strawberries
40 caramels
3 T whipping cream
1/4 t Kosher salt
1 - 1/4 C coarsely chopped mixed nuts
Wax paper



Strawberry Bowl



Wash strawberries and pat dry. Caramel won't stick to wet strawberries.



Caramel and Cream



Microwave caramel, whipping cream, and salt in a bowl at medium power, 3.5 minutes. Stir after each minute.

Dip each berry halfway into caramel mixture, roll in nuts, place on lightly greased wax paper. Let set for 15 minutes. Serve immediately or cover and chill up to 8 hours.



Caramel Strawberries



I was out of wax paper, so I used tin foil. They did stick a bit, so I recommend wax paper.



Caramel Strawberries


They are gorgeous little things. I think one placed to the side of a pretty cake, or a few of them surrounding scoops of vanilla bean ice cream drizzled with the left over caramel would be really impressive.

(But I just ate them right off the tray.)

I would say that your photos are great and could easily go into a cooking book, but I am sorry for the strawberries, I so much love them natural, only with a little bit of sugar ! lol !

Mary said...

Dang, that looks good!

de said...

You had me at salt.

I'd skip the dipping and just use a spoon on the melted caramel.

Four weeks to native strawberry season up here!!

YUM! Will have to try that, maybe even my 8 year old would eat a strawberry if it was covered in caramel!

Pamela M. Kramer said...

WOW that looks so good!

Renée aka Mekhismom said...

That looks really good, I'd probably substitute chocolate for caramel but I think it would still be delicious!
