Caramel-filled chocolates are right up there among my favourite chocolates to make, so this time I used smoked sea salt to flavour the caramel. These are great to give to people as gifts or simply to munch on without guilt!
Not a lot needs to be said about these as they are just dark chocolate filled with smoked salt caramel. Basically my take on Rolo, a sweet I adored growing up!
The method for making the chocolates is as in my cappuccino chocolates post: here. I just used a different mould for these caramel chocolates.
I was going to make a chocolate gateau version of these for my Ultimate Chocolate Dessert in Episode 5 of Britain’s Best Home Cook (layers of sponge, caramel ganache, chocolate shards, a touch of salt…..) but I was, rightly, lured by my old favourite: the Black Forest Gateau!
The recipe for the caramel is here into which I added enough smoked salt to give a kick of smoky-saltiness
