How to make Salted Caramel for Macarons

First, you need to bloom the gelatin. That meant, to mix powdered gelatin and cold water in the small bowl and let it to soak. Set aside in the cold place or put in the fridge.

In the medium-sized saucepan add granulated sugar and turn the heat up to medium. Start melting sugar. Do not stir! Sugar should be completely dissolved and has beautiful amber color. 

Tip from Marina: I like to use light-colored saucepan to make caramel. This way is easy to see the color of caramel and not to burn it. 

In the meanwhile, in the small saucepan add heavy cream and glucose syrup. Warm up over low heat. Do not boil! 

When sugar has fully dissolved and there are no clumps left, start pouring warm heavy cream with glucose syrup into it in 3-4 parts. Mix with the wooden spoon and take off the heat. 

Please be very careful when pouring warm cream into melted sugar. The mixture will be very hot! It is important to wear heat prove gloves.

Add gelatin mass into the mixture and mix well with the wooden spoon. 

Strain the mixture through a sieve and let cool down.

Cut unsalted butter into small pieces. Add butter and mix well until you get smooth caramel. 

Add flaky sea salt and mix again whit the spatula. Do not use whisk to mix caramel, you do not need extra air. I have recipe of Whipped Caramel included in my video lesson how to make macaron shells.

Transfer into pipping bag and let it set in the refrigerator for 6-8 hours or overnight. You can also transfer caramel into bowl or flat container, cover with plastic wrap “to contact” and keep in the fridge until ready to fill macarons.

  1. so this look fantastic, so with gelatin it wont melt right_? And what’s the use of glucose syrup, is it for the texture?

    1. Thank you! Gelatine helps to hold shape of caramel when you fill macarons. Caramel will not be runny. Glucose syrup used to prevent crystallization. Let me know how you like this recipe. Woould love to see your creations!
