Salted Caramel Truffles

Salted Caramel Truffles with only 5 ingredients ( 3 ingredients in the caramel filling ) and NO thermometer needed

I used my favorite recipe for Caramels, coated the rolled balls in Dark Chocolate and sprinkled them with coarse Sea Salt – all with only 5 ingredients. (Chocolate and Salt included!)

These Salted Caramel Truffles are so easy to make and they are a frequent sweet treat in our house.

I have to warn you though, these Truffles disappear as if there is no tomorrow. They are extremely addictive and I can never stop eating them.

Good thing the rest of my family also love them, otherwise my weight might just jump sky-high !

I usually keep them in a sealed container in the refrigerator during Summer, as they tend to go very soft and sometimes even melt with the Summer heat.

But during Winter these Salted Caramel Truffles are usually kept close-by in the lounge, which is not a good thing … it’s a case of  ” I see .. I must have ..”.

All in all, it is a miracle if we have any left over from the previous day !

I have made these twice.... they taste good, but I have had a hard time getting the caramel to firm up enough to roll into balls.... eventually, after I leave it in the fridge overnight, I can get a balls to form. They don’t stay in shape for long..... have to be kept in the fridge? I live in Western Canada. I’m also thinking that vanilla would be nice to add to the flavour? Any suggestions re. Holding their shape? I did keep the caramel on the stove longer, because it wasn’t thickening enough. They do taste very yummy, thanks for any advice, Nirmal.

Hi Nirmal, I have never encountered any problems regarding the truffles holding shape. You can of course add a bit more (say another 1/2 or even 1 tablespoon Butter) to the recipe. Vanilla sounds delicious, but add little by little (and taste after each addition) almost at the end of cooking. Hope this helps (let me know?)

I have made a similar recipe using tinned Caramelized Condensed Milk. Very yummy and quick to make!

Is there anything else comparable to golden syrup that can be substituted?

Kim, I had to look it up and it looks like you can use a combination of corn syrup and honey (equal amounts to make 1/3 cup) instead. Please let us know how the truffles turn out if you make use of this combination ?
