How about a DIY GIFT Salted Caramel in a Jar for someone you have yet to choose a gift for. Salted Caramel has got to be one of my favorite toppings. You can add it to just about anything and it makes it taste wonderful ha ha. I made up this Salted Carmel Recipe a few weeks back and decided that it is going to make great gifts for a few of the people I have on my Christmas list. I personally love it on ice cream, apples, and popcorn. Oh and Pancakes, lol.
DIY GIFT Salted Caramel in a Jar with FREE Printable Label
Making Salted Caramel is so simple, I shared my recipe with you a few months back in my No Bake Salted Caramel Apple Cheesecake in a Jar. It has been such a hit in our house that I figured it would be great to gift out this year. I made up a few batches and placed them in 1/2 pint sized mason jars, added a ribbon and the Cute Salted Caramel Label my hubby made for me to add. If you are needing some last minute gifts try whipping up a batch of this yummy goodness!
1/2 cup light Corn syrup
1/2 cup Sugar
3 tbsp Butter
1/2 cup Heavy Cream
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
Place corn syrup in a medium pan and heat over medium heat.
When corn syrup is heated (starting to bubble) add sugar and stir until well mixed.
Let syrup cook without stirring until it turns a golden color.
Remove from heat add butter and stir until blended.
Slowly add cream while stirring constantly to blend.
Add salt and stir until dissolved.
If gifting add a ribbon and one of the FREE Salted Caramel Printable Labels
You can refrigerate this gift before giving or I know when I worked at a Ice Cream Stand caramel did not need to be refrigerated. I have had mine out for a couple weeks on the counter top and all is good with it. So I would think no refrigeration would be needed.
