This is the easiest caramel recipe to make and the best tasting!!! It can be used all year round and not just for the holidays!
Here's what you need:
2 lbs. brown sugar
2 cups corn syrup
2 cups butter
2 cans sweetened condensed milk
2 dashes salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
In a large metal pot over medium heat, add corn syrup and brown sugar and stir until brown sugar is melted. Add butter and melt. Add sweetened condensed milk and salt. Cook and stir constantly until a candy thermometer reaches 245 to 250 degrees F. or soft ball stage. You can also do the cold water check making sure it is at the soft ball stage. Remove from heat and add the vanilla. Pour into a 9"x13" pan that has been sprayed with butter Pam.
Cut into small squares and wrap in wax paper or decorative foils that you can buy at a cake or candy shop
Be sure to only make these for giving out and keep a little for yourself!!! I swear they will be in your mouth whenever you walk by them!!!!
Hope you enjoy them as much as we do!!! Let me know if you make them!!
