3. Continue cooking for 10 minutes, scraping sides and stirring constantly. (If desired at about 8 minutes, put a drop of the mixture into a cup of cold water; if it immediately ribbons and will form into a soft ball, it is done)

5. Pour hot caramel over nuts, covering them all, using a spatula to spread evenly.

6. Melt dark chocolate and pour over nuts, fruit and caramel. Sprinkle lightly with sea salt. Set aside to cool.
