2.Salted Butter Caramel

In a saucepan, make a dry caramel with the sugar, the temperature should not exceed 347 F-355 F(175 C-180 C). (Add sugar in the pan in 2-3 batches this way you can keep the caramel in your control. Melt the sugar completely before adding the next batch). While the sugar is heating, scald the cream. Using a heatproof spatula, stir the cream into the caramel, taking care that it does not splutter, to prevent the caramel from darkening any further remove it from the heat and gradually add butter mix in then add salt. Return to heat and cook to 228 F (109 C). Let cool, then whisk lightly so it is easier to pipe.

Shaping and Glazing Spheres

Take out the hemispheres from molds. Combine 2 to make sphere (a ball shape) Now insert skewers in them and dip into chocolate coating. Chocolate coating should be at almost 35 C when you dip frozen sphere in it. Chill them for 10-15 minutes then reheat the prepared chocolate mirror glaze in microwave. Be careful do not heat it too much, give it short bursts in the microwave for 20-30 seconds and stir in between. Do not exceed the temperature above 45 C. Pour it over frozen spheres when glaze temperature is almost 32-35 C.
