  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
1.5 hrs
3 hrs
5 hrs
  • In a saucepan, combine all the ingredients except for the vanilla.
  • Cook over low heat, STIRRING CONSTANTLY, until sugar is all dissolved.
  • Continue to cook on low until the mixture gets to the hard ball stage (256 degrees F. works well); stir frequently. It will take 2 - 3 hours for the temperature to reach this point.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla.
  • Pour into a well-greased 10" x 15" x 1" baking sheet. Allow the caramel mixture to cool slightly; and then flip over turn out onto a greased work surface where you can cut the caramels.
  • Allow the caramel mixture to cool until it is a handling temperature. Once the caramels can be handled, start cutting them to the desired size.
  • Once the caramels are completely cooled, the excess grease can be wiped off with a paper towel and the caramels can be wrapped in plastic wrap pieces.

"I am so happy to find this recipe. I thought I had lost it. I made these caramels last year and want to make them again for Christmas. They are scrumptious. My family loved them."
