Step 6. Remove caramel from pan and set on a cutting board. Using an oiled chef’s knife, cut the caramels to desired shapes and sizes.
Step 7. Pour warm SoChatti in a bowl for dipping. Keep your SoChatti chocolate bowl warm throughout the dipping process.
Step 8. Drop caramels one at a time into SoChatti, take dipped caramels out of chocolate using a small fork. Set on parchment paper and top with a sprinkle of sea salt. Chocolates can be placed in the fridge to solidify.
