I Heart Cooking Clubs theme is "Gifts from the Heart". Now, the gifts I like to receive are either quite practical - money towards new linens, socks - or very beautiful, ephemeral and indulgent things I would never buy for myself.
These caramels fall firmly into the latter category.
I used a 10 x 7" pan instead of the loaf tin specified in Diana Henry's recipe, so they were a bit thinner, but because they are a soft (chewy but not filling-ripping) caramel, it's possible to gently press them into a fatter shape when you cut them, if you prefer. I didn't mind the thinner ones but I did need to do a little squashing to get them back into a nice square shape.
These were absolutely gorgeous. Sweet, but with some richer dark caramel notes and the hint of salt, creamy and utterly delectable. A gift from the heart that any caramel lover would be delighted to receive.
