  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon anise extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon red or black coloring paste
1.5 hrs
30 mins
2 hrs
  • Generously grease a 10 x 15 stoneware pan or a jelly roll pan.
  • In a saucepan, melt the butter over low heat; and then add the sugar, sweetened condensed milk, corn syrup, and salt. Mix well and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently.
  • Cook until the mixture reaches the firm ball stage or until it reaches a temperature of 244 degrees F. Be sure to stir frequently because the mixture will scorch easily.
  • Remove from the heat and add the anise extract and coloring paste; mix well. Pour into the greased pan.
  • Cool slightly and then quickly flip the pan over onto a greased working surface.
  • Allow it to cool just long enough so you can handle it; then cut the caramels to the desired size. Using a greased scissors works well to cut the caramels.
  • After cooling completely, wipe off the excess grease with a paper towel and then wrap the caramels in pieces of plastic wrap.
