DIRECTIONS

  • Line bottom and sides of an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper, then lightly oil parchment.
  • Bring cream, butter, and fleur de sel to a boil in a small saucepan, then remove from heat and set aside.
  • Boil sugar, corn syrup, and water in a 3- to 4-quart heavy saucepan, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Boil, without stirring but gently swirling pan, until mixture is a light golden caramel.
  • Carefully stir in cream mixture (mixture will bubble up) and simmer, stirring frequently, until caramel registers 248°F on thermometer, 10 to 15 minutes (firm ball stage).
  • Pour into baking pan and cool 2 hours. Cut into 1-inch pieces, then wrap each piece in a 4-inch square of wax paper, twisting 2 ends to close. Recommendation: use a pizza cutter to cut caramel into strips, the poultry shears to cut into individual pieces.
