  1. Line baking sheet with wax paper.
  2. Microwave morsels and vegetable shortening in small, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 1 minute; stir. The morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted; cool slightly.
  3. Dip caramel pieces, using a fork, into melted chocolate. Shake off or scrape excess chocolate against side of bowl. Place on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with sea salt. Refrigerate for 15 minutes or until set.

These are fantastic if you love sea salt as much as I do :). I took Kraft caramels and sliced them in half (b/c the full thing was a little tough to chew too much caramel for the chocolate coating) then I used sharp toothpicks and dipped each in melted dark chocolate and sprinkled salt to taste. When I removed the toothpicks, i used a spoon to put a bit of chocolate to cover the hole. Everyone loved them.

I love the chocolates. But do not microwave to melt, use your stove on low heat stir often.

Great idea and taste. I did not use the caramel squares. I boil condensed milk and use that caramel.
