Not our usual 20-minute recipe, but so worth the time! These gourmet caramels have just the right amount of sweetness to complement the deep, bold flavor of our Salted Caramel Coffee. Finish with a light sprinkle of sea salt to make these buttery bites a delightful gift.


  1. Lightly grease bottom and sides of 9”x9” baking dish. Line with parchment paper and lightly grease paper. Set aside.
  2. In medium heavy bottom sauce pan, combine heavy cream, coffee grounds, sugars, butter and corn syrup. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring until sugars have dissolved and butter has melted. Reduce heat to medium and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until mixture is thick and reaches 235°F on a candy thermometer, about 30 minutes. Add vanilla extract and salt, stir to combine. Pour caramel mixture into prepared pan and let cool, uncovered, at room temperature for about 4 hours.
  3. Once cooled completely, cut into 1x1 inch squares and wrap each piece in a square of waxed paper.
