    Here's a conversion chart. These look super yummy! Thanks for the recipe, Alberta. There should be no problem using salted butter.

    What is double cream?
    Also, instead of adding a pinch of salt as the recipe says, would it be possible to just use salted butter, or is that too much?

    I can't wait to try these. My mother loves chocolate caramels. She used to eat a candy called fudgies but they aren't made anymore. Do you have a conversion for American measurements? I am a poor college student and don't have a scale to measure the chocolate/sugar/corn syrup.

    O.o

    The chocolate flavor looks like this:
    2.12 oz (by wt) Cocoa
    .42 cups or 3.38 fl oz double cream
    2.47 oz (by wt) corn syrup
    2.82 oz (by wt) Caster sugar
    1/2 tsp vanilla extract.

    I suspect you can tweak the amounts ever so slightly. I'm a little confused by the weight measures for fluid items.
