The holiday season is upon us — do you have gift ideas for everyone on your list? If you’re thinking of going the homemade route, these DIY salted apple cider caramels are an excellent option.

Caramel gets a bad wrap for being finicky and tricky, but you’ll be fine as long as you have a trusty candy thermometer. This recipe yields 20 caramels, but you can easily double it if you want to make a big batch to give away as gifts.

These caramels are a festive treat to give to friends, family, coworkers, or even your mailman — basically anyone who will appreciate a sticky-sweet-salty candy made with love.
