If you love salted caramel - this is the way to eat it! Slightly salty, definitely sweet, and covered in milk chocolate. mmmmm!
1cupsweetened condensed milk
1/2cuplight brown sugar
1cupwhite chocolate chips
1/2teaspoonsea salt + extra for sprinkling on top
10ounceschocolate candy coating or about 2 cups chocolate chips
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter, condensed milk, and brown sugar until totally combined and sugar is dissolved and it starts to thicken a little, about 4-6 minutes. Alternatively, you can use a microwave in 30 second spurts.
Mix in the white chocolate chips until they have melted completely and you have a smooth mixture. Depending on the quality of the chocolate, this might take some time. Again, you can also opt for the microwave.
Remove from heat.
Slowly stir in the sea salt until combined throughout.
Allow to cool about 10 minutes.
Transfer to a bowl, then cover with plastic wrap, making sure the top of the mixture is totally covered by the wrap. Leave in refrigerator for 2-4 hours, or until it's nice and solid.
Take it out of the fridge and let it sit for about 10 minutes.
Using a tablespoon cookie scoop, create balls of salted caramel mixture. Roll them in your hands to make them smooth.
Place toothpicks in the center of each ball, then put each on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
Place in freezer about 30 minutes.
Melt the candy melts or chocolate chips in the microwave until completely melted and smooth. Let it cool but not harden before coating the candies.
Coat them each in the melted chocolate.
Sprinkle with sea salt while they are still wet.
Let them set until chocolate has hardened, then dig in!! :)
This recipe makes about 10-13 truffles. You can double the recipe to make more.To keep their shape and consistency, you'll want to store these in a container in the fridge.
