Salted Caramel Mousse with Caramel Popcorn

 
Recently, I’ve been going town at making salted caramel desserts. Thanks to the constant cajoling from my 15-year old teenager who is a big fan of the salty-sweet delicious sauce.

This easy to make no bake Salted Caramel Mousse with Caramel Popcorn dessert is one of the recent experiment I’ve tried. Super easy to make, all you need is a little patience while waiting for the dessert to chill for at least 6 hours or overnight before consumption.

Making your own caramel sauce is really easier than solving a Math equation (okay, maybe I suck at Math so that’s just me), check out the video below to see what I mean.

While making caramel sauce, don’t let anything distract you. Not even a phone call from your husband. Keeping an eye like a hawk at the stove is the key to success. Also, make sure to whisk the salt into the caramel while it is still hot so they’ll dissolve completely. Unless you like to bite into grainy bits of salt which I don’t in the case.
