Fleur de Sel Caramel and Vanilla Cream Fondant Spirals

Wow, that's a long name for a candy.  Anyway, I bought the cookbook Sugar Baby a couple of weeks ago and have been dying to try some of the recipes but I wasn't able to find the time until yesterday.  I don't have a whole lot of experience cooking sugar, so I was a little bit nervous about it.  I decided to start off with this recipe for delicious caramel swirled with vanilla bean fondant, both of which require cooking sugar.  It was a lot of work (and oh, the dishes!), but they turned out perfectly and taste delicious! 

You might remember that I mentioned that I had TMJ, and that I just got my braces off that were meant to fix the TMJ.  So today, I really put it to the test.  If I had eaten these two years ago, I would have had immediate jaw pain and that achy jaw feeling for at least a day or two.  Today, after eating two of these (and they're actually pretty big), I feel zero pain!  Thank you, Susie (my orthodontist)!

Kenni, I know the candies you're talking about, but I've never eaten one so I don't know.
