Vanilla Caramels

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, cold, cut into pieces
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Directions

In 6 quart stock pot, mix butter, sugar and corn syrup over medium heat until sugar is dissolved and begins to bubble.

Stir sweetened condensed milk into sugar and butter mixture quickly and continuously with a heat resistant rubber scraper, until mixture reads 245° on candy thermometer (approximately 20-30 minutes).

Remove from heat and add vanilla. Stir quickly, then pour into parchment-lined 9″x13″ pan. Cool overnight. 

Lift parchment out onto cutting board. Cut 1″ strips then individual pieces. Wrap in wax paper squares.

Helpful Tips

  • Prepare pan before you begin. Parchment paper is a must!
  • Candy thermometer is also a must!
  • Stir, stir, stir…mixture can scorch very quickly.
  • 245° is soft caramel…closer to 250° is chewier…any higher and you’re making toffee.
