Spiced Pomegranate and Orange Caramels by kangarhubarb

WHO: New member(!) kangarhubarb is a student who spends much of her time daydreaming about food.
WHAT: Citrus and pomegranate make this caramel pop, while spice plays the supporting role. 
HOW: You'll have to watch your thermometer like a hawk, but vigilance is always key with candy, right? 
WHY WE LOVE IT: These are winter in candy form. We find that they're perfect for eating (and eating) around the fireplace, alongside a mug of tea. And we can never say no to anything with a sprinkling of flaky sea salt.
