Sea Salt Caramels a bust - suggestions?

mickeygee | Dec 12, 201004:37 PM

I tried my third attempt at sea salt caramels today, and it was a bust. Much more of a werthers consistency than the soft version I was hoping for. I don't know if it's the recipe, or if I've heated it too much, but would love advice on how to get them to come out well.

The recipe called for
1 1/2 c sugar
1/4 c light corn syrup
1/2 c water
1 c heavy cream
5 TB salted butter
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
Fleur de sel (for sprinkling on top)

Cooked till it hit 244.

Thoughts?
