Just say the words dark chocolate, sea salt and caramel and odds are you’ll have people listening. Add a few blackberries or other great fruit and you have something uniquely special. See our video to watch how easy it is to make.

See how to make it in our SPILL video.

You can use any berry to add a unique flavor to this candy--blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries. But, if you like your candy with just nuts, you can leave out the fruit without any effect.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole salted almonds
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 cups light brown sugar
  • 15 ounces dark chocolate chips (about one and a half packages)
  • 6 ounces fresh blackberries (or substitute fruit or dried fruit of your choice)
  • sprinkling of sea salt (optional)

Preparation

  • 1 Lightly butter a cookie sheet or parchment paper on a cookie sheet
  • 2 Sprinkle salted almonds over the cookie sheet, evenly distributed but slightly away from the edges; set aside
  • 3 Slice blackberries so they are coin shaped (one or two slices per berry, depending on size) and add to nuts, sprinkled throughout the pan
  • 4 Put butter and brown sugar in a saucepan
  • 5 Cook together over medium high heat until mixture comes to a boil, stirring constantly
  • 6 Continue cooking for 10 minutes, scraping sides and stirring constantly
  • 7 (If desired at about 8 minutes, do the cold water test, where you put a drop of the mixture into a cup of cold water; if it immediately ribbons and will form into a soft ball, it is done)
  • 8 Once done, immediately pour over nuts, covering them all, using a spatula to spread evenly
  • 9 Melt dark chocolate (if using a microwave, it will take 2-3 minutes; check it every 30 seconds and stir so chocolate will not burn)
  • 10 Pour chocolate over nuts, fruit and caramel
  • 11 Sprinkle lightly with sea salt
  • 12 Once cooled, simply break apart into pieces
