A hit of good salt will round out the buttery sweetness of caramel; hence, the genius of salt caramels!
Mnosyne recommends Little Flower sea salt caramels. They have a buttery flavor that lingers on your tongue. Mildly salty, and good.

Fran’s Chocolates uses the grey salt from the coast of Brittany in their caramels, and they’re also chocolate dipped. Check at a Whole Foods markets for these, or order online.
