Recipe — Maple-Chocolate Caramel With Fleur De Sel
Metric Imperial


  • 2 3/4 cups maple syrup (preferably amber syrup for its rich flavour)
  • 3 3/4 cups maple sugar
  • 3 cups 35%, warmed
  • 1 1/2 cup milk chocolate, grated
  • 2 tsp fleur de sel
  • 3 3/4 cups unsalted butter, cubed


  1. In a saucepan, over medium heat, reduce the maple syrup to about 500 ml (2 cups).
  2. Add the maple sugar and cook without stirring until obtaining a clear caramel.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan or microwavable container, heat the cream.
  4. Remove the saucepan of caramel from the heat and gradually add the warm cream, taking care not to splash. Return to the heat, place a candy thermometer in the saucepan and simmer the caramel until the thermometer reads 112°C (233°F).
  5. Add the chocolate and fleur de sel, stirring well to achieve a homogenous consistency.
  6. Add the butter and, off the heat, incorporate it well with a stick blender until obtaining a nice smooth caramel.
  7. Strain through cheesecloth and place in containers.

More about Maple

Maple syrup comes in four classifications, according to colour and taste.

At the start of sugaring season, syrup is generally clear, with a lightly sweet taste. It becomes darker and caramelized as the season goes on.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter contains no butter or dairy.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree… and that’s all.
