Salted Caramel and crunchy caramel chocolates

This post will be dedicated to my darling husband!.. cause the recipe that I am going to share is a sweet one and the surprise is that the DH doesn't run away at the name of sweet... but he loves this as they taste similar to the Cadbury's 5 star chocolate and this was the first ever chocolate the DH had had as a child and loves it with his heart and soul!!
caramel.. as complicated as it sounds... it is one of the most easiest things that you can make... so here goes the recipe.. Ingredients for the caramel 1. 200 ml cream ( I used Amul cream ) 2. 1 1/2 cups caster sugar 3. 1 cup water 4. 1/4 tsp cinnamon 5. 1 tsp vanilla extract 6. 1/8 tsp salt in a heavy bottomed pan, pour in the water, add the sugar in the center of the pan. Let the sugar melt by itself on a low heat, restrain from stirring. once the sugar is completely melted add the cinnamon and vanilla, turn the flame to high and allow the sugar to turn a golden brown. The whole process may take from 10-15 minutes. Keep an eye on the pan as in no time the beautiful golden brown will turn to a black burnt mess. while the sugar is melting, heat the cream in microwave for about 30 seconds to bring it to a thin pour-able consistency. once the sugar is turned golden brown, reduce heat to low,wear oven mitts, whisk the cream into the sugar syrup. whisk for 2 minutes. Take off heat, add salt whisk and leave it to cool off completely.
ingredients for the chocolates 1. 100 grams semi sweet cooking chocolate 2. 20 grams rice crispies and corn flakes crushed slightly 3. and of course the caramel chop the chocolate into very small identical pieces, put it in a microwave safe bowl, heat in microwave for 30 seconds, take out the bowl and stir with a spoon. heat again for 30 seconds in microwave and stir with a spoon. Note : when chocolate is in the microwave do not go by the look of the chocolate, it will hold shape even when it is almost melted. take a chocolate mold, pour 1/4 tsp chocolate in each mold, then add some caramle, sprinkle some corn falkes mixture and fill the mold with chocolate again. Freeze for 20-30 minutes.
