Salted Caramel Ghosts for Halloween | Easy and Fun

by Maria

So I was making these delicious caramels for a hostess gift this weekend, and I had so many extra’s. I will bring these to the Halloween party at the elementary school, I thought!  Well that was where I got stumped because they did not seem very spooky. That was until I created the salted caramel ghost. Wala! Oh for the love of the sharpie pen.  Don’t want me to keep this easy recipe a secret any longer? Here it is.

 

The Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream or heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

The Directions

  • Lightly oil a 9 x5 or 8 x 8 pan, cut parchment paper out to size and oil the paper as well.
  • Cut butter into small cubes, and combine with heavy cream in a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 1.5 minutes or until melted. Set aside.
  • Combine water, corn syrup and sugar into a small pot. Try not to get sugar on the sides of the pan.
  • Heat pot to boiling. Do not stir.
  • At 320 degrees F or 160 degrees C, start to add the melted butter and cream. This is where it gets a little wild, bubbling and steaming.  Add just a little at a time.
  • Reheat to 240 degrees F or 115 degrees Ceasy-salted-caramel-ghosts-halloween

  • Add sea salt at 30 minutes
  • Let set for 2-3 hours
  • Cool for 30 minutes
  • Cut into small pieceeasy-salted-caramel-ghosts-halloween-3 easy-salted-caramel-ghosts-halloween-7

Easy Salted Caramel Ghosts for Halloween

I love old and traditional foods and candies, so making caramel is a love.  I wrap these up and give them at the holidays, at parties and for birthdays.  I love that these sweet treats have been around for hundreds of years, and they persevered.
