Salted Caramel Covered Strawberrie

These Salted Caramel Covered Strawberries only take about 15 minutes to make and I bet 15 seconds to eat. Oh and I cheated.

Instead of making my own caramel, I got a little help from a yellow bag and a microwave.

Oh how I love modern convenience, especially when it comes to candy coated strawberries!

If you want to be real fancy, I suppose you could make your own salted caramel. But me? I’m just fine with these little nuggets. Melt them in the microwave with some sea salt.

One of the tricks to this recipe is to soak the strawberries briefly in ice water to perk up the green stem and improves the succulent texture of the strawberries.

Melt the caramel in the microwave, swirl the strawberry to coat, then into your choice of chopped nuts (quick, someone make them with pistachios!!).

I love messy caramel.

Salted Caramel Covered Strawberries Recipe

Servings: Prep Time: Cook Time:
Strawberry

This recipe came from a brand-new cookbook called Southern Living Farmer Market Cookbook, and I've try for the recipe so far, all a big hit. Lots of photos and recipes featuring the goods you'd find at your local farmers market.

Ingredients:

10 large fresh strawberries
20 caramels
1 1/2 tablespoons whipping cream
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup coarsely chopped mixed nuts (peanuts and almond slivers)
Wax paper

Directions:

1. Soak strawberries in a ice bath for 5 minutes to restore their perky leaves
2. Pat strawberries completely dry with paper towels
3. Microwave caramels, whipping cream, and salt in a microwave-safe bowl at MEDIUM(50% power) 2 minutes or until smooth, stirring at 1-minute intervals.
4. Dip each strawberry halfway into caramel mixture. Roll in nuts, and place on lightly greased wax paper. Let stand 15 minutes. Serve immediately, or cover and chill up to 8 hours.
