Ingredients

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 1 cup corn syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 teaspoons fleur de sel

Method

Line 9-inch (2.5 L) square metal cake pan with parchment paper; set aside.

In large saucepan, stir together sugar, 1 cup (250 mL) of the cream, corn syrup and salt ; bring to boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. In thin steady stream, add remaining cream, making sure mixture keeps boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low; boil, without stirring, for 5 minutes.

Stir in butter, 1 tsp (5 mL) at a time. Boil, stirring occasionally, until candy thermometer registers firm-ball stage of 250°F (121°C), 25 to 35 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla.

Pour into prepared pan; let cool until surface is slightly firm, 30 minutes. Score into 1-inch (2.5 cm) squares. Sprinkle with fleur de sel. Let cool until firm, about 2 hours. Remove from pan; cut into squares. Wrap each in waxed paper. (Make-ahead: Store wrapped candies in airtight container for up to 1 week.)
