Paper-thin chocolate caramel with sea salt

Previously, sugar confectionery was used for decoration only, but nowadays every component of a dish is expected to play a part in enhancing its flavour or the experience it provides. This garnish illustrates this trend perfectly. Ultra-thin and crispy, it doesn't stick and has a delicious taste.
Another advantage is that it's easy to make and keeps exceptionally well.
