Caramels













Ingredients

2 cups sugar

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 cup Butter

1 cup milk

1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream

1 cup light corn syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions:

Butter a 9×13 pan (full batch) or 9×9 (half batch) and put pan in freezer.

This recipe can be halved.

Combine all ingredients except vanilla in heavy 4-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 15-20 minutes or until butter is melted and mixture comes to a boil.

Reduce heat as low as you can so that it continues boiling. continue cooking 25-30+ minutes or until candy thermometer reaches 248°F (The longer this takes the better as that is what develops the deep flavor).

Remove from heat; stir in vanilla. Pour into prepared pan. Cool completely – Refrigerate 1 hour should do the trick.

I pull the whole slab of caramel out of the pan onto wax-paper to cut it.
