This ensures less sugar and processing in the dark chocolate and yields maximum health benefits. Some tips to keep in mind while making homemade caramel for this recipe are, both the butter and heavy cream should be at room temperature or warmer. Otherwise, the caramel could harden up and ruin the texture. Do not add too much or too little cream for the caramel to firm up well. When you’re cooking the caramel, you want to look for amber colour. Don’t let it sit on the stove for too long as it might get too dark or it could burn. The caramel when hot actually seems quite thin until it cools.
