Fun with Food, Salted Caramels and Chocolate Pretzels

I volunteer at a local museum once a week, and yesterday they had an open house to showcase their new display on SALT.  

I was asked if I would make something for it, so I had to come up with something salty, of course.

I made some of my Homemade Caramels and sprinkled the tops with some Sea Salt, in other words, Salted Caramels.

And they were so good.  Not the last time I do them that way.    I have to really push this recipe, so easy, so quick and it really impresses people.  I've had one of my guests at a Tapas Night make the caramel recipe and put them inside an apple.  They were so good.

And for a fun presentation, place them in mini cupcake liners, they come in all kinds of colors as well as plain white.  (also keeps the caramels from oozing together). 

 I also dipped some pretzel sticks in chocolate and sprinkled sea salt on them as well.
 I was rather pleased with the whole thing. 
 Hint:  After dipping the pretzels, place them on parchment paper and throw  put them in the freezer for a couple of minutes to firm up.  

So I thought I would share them here.

Or at least the pictures.

Just another fun thing to do with food.
