I know! OH EM GEE.
20 fresh large strawberries
3 T whipping cream
1/4 t Kosher salt
1 - 1/4 C coarsely chopped mixed nuts
Wash strawberries and pat dry. Caramel won't stick to wet strawberries.
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.
I was out of wax paper, so I used tin foil. They did stick a bit, so I recommend wax paper.
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.)
