Peppermint Caramels Recipe

Peppermint Caramels


4 oz. hard peppermint candies
1¼ cups heavy cream
1 cup superfine sugar
6 tbsp. golden syrup or 
dark corn syrup
3 tbsp. honey
7 tbsp. unsalted butter


1. Put peppermint candies into a plastic bag and crush them coarsely with the flat side of a meat mallet. Using a large sieve, sift candy pieces, discarding powder; set candy pieces aside.

2. Line the bottom of an 8″ x 8″ baking pan with parchment paper; grease parchment paper with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.

3. Heat cream, sugar, syrup, and honey in a 6″-diameter 2-qt. saucepan over medium heat; stir until sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Bring to a boil and attach a candy thermometer to the side of the pan; cook, without stirring, until mixture reaches 250°, about 45 minutes. Remove pan from the heat and add butter. Using a wooden spoon, stir until smooth, about 3 minutes.

4. Pour sugar mixture onto prepared baking pan and sprinkle evenly with peppermint candy pieces, pressing them lightly into toffee with the back of a spatula. Let cool completely; cut into 64 squares to serve.
