Ingredients

11 ounces store-bought caramels

2 tablespoons heavy cream 

1 1/2 tablespoons white miso paste 

About 2 1/2 sleeves butter crackers, such as Ritz (about 72 crackers) 

8 ounces chopped dark chocolate or dark chocolate chips 

Flaky salt, such as Maldon, for topping

Sprinkles, for topping

Directions

  1. In a medium pot, combine the caramels and heavy cream. Heat over medium low, stirring, until the caramels are melted and the mixture is smooth, about 7 minutes. Stir in the miso and remove from the heat. Let cool for a few minutes, so the caramel can thicken slightly.
  2. Arrange half of the crackers salty-side down on a baking sheet lined with parchment and dollop on about 1 teaspoon caramel per cracker (or as much as will fit without spilling over the edges…but it's ok if it spills off a little). Top each with another cracker salty-side up. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. In a double boiler or a microwave in 30-second increments, melt the chocolate, stirring until smooth. Let cool slightly.
  4. Dip the crackers halfway into the chocolate and place back on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with flaky salt and sprinkles. Let set in the refrigerator or at room temperature until the chocolate is firm, about 30 minutes.
