  3. Mix in corn syrup and then whisk in warm cream slowly, being cautious not to add too much cream or it will boil over.
  4. Once all the cream has been added, bring caramel to boil while whisking then turn off heat.
  5. When the caramel is no longer bubbling add butter and salt, whisk until emulsified.
  6. Allow to cool completely at room temperature before pouring into your serving vessel.

Pâte á Bombe
  1. Set up a double boiler over medium heat with a bowl that fits snuggly on the pot but does not touch the water directly.
  2. Combine the eggs, egg yolks, sugar, water, and salt to make the pâte á bombe mixture by whisk gently in the the bowl of the double boiler.  Cook to 82ºC-85ºC (179ºF -185ºF).
