Salted Caramel Cream

  • 200 g Crystal Sugar
  • 100 g Butter unsalted
  • 175 g Heavy Cream
  • 2 Pinches Fleur de sel

Milk Chocolate Pralines


  • Mini Sugar Christmas Trees


Salted Caramel Cream

  • In a large saucepan, melt the sugar over low/medium heat until a nice light golden caramel is formed. (Can take up to 20 minutes).
  • During this time, the sugar should not be touched with any objects. (Don't stir, only shake the pan if necessary).
  • Once a beautiful caramel has formed, stir in the butter in small pieces until a creamy caramel is formed. Then add two pinches of fleur de sel.
  • Now heat up the cream (please do not boil!) and stir it carefully into the caramel.
  • Let the caramel cream cook for two minutes, and then fill it immediately into the squeeze bottles.
  • Let the caramel cool down to 77 °F // 25 °C

Filling up the milk chocolate salted caramel truffles

  • Place the milk chocolate hollow spheres on the kitchen table and fill them up with the salted caramel cream just below the rim.
  • Put them for several hours (about 8 hours) into the fridge to settle. 

Sealing the truffles

  • Melt the milk chocolate couverture in a water bath. 
  • Take the cooled hollow spheres out of the fridge and seal them with your chosen sealing tool. 
  • Then place the sealed chocolates in the refrigerator for half an hour until firm.

Coating and decorating

  • There should be enough melted chocolate leftover from sealing to coat the chocolates.
  • Prepare a cooling grid to place the chocolates to dry. Place parchment paper beneath to reduce the mess.
  • Now, one by one, take the chocolates, dip them into the tempered chocolate coating and then carefully lift them out.
  • Let the excess chocolate drip off briefly and place them carefully on the cooling grid. Do so for each chocolate.
  • While the chocolate coating is still soft and moist, you can decorate your salted caramel pralines.
