How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Line 9-inch square pan with aluminum foil, extending over edges. Butter bottom and sides of foil.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine brown sugar, butter, corn syrup and sweetened condensed milk in heavy 3-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until mixture comes to a boil.

  3. STEP 3

    Cook 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until candy thermometer reaches 240°F-242°F or small amount of mixture dropped into cold water forms soft pliable ball. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla. Pour into prepared pan. Cool 2 hours at room temperature until set.

  4. STEP 4

    Combine chocolate chips and whipping cream in bowl. Microwave 1-2 minutes, stirring every 15 seconds, until chocolate is melted. Spread mixture evenly over caramels. Cool 5 minutes; sprinkle with sea salt. Refrigerate until completely cooled.
