I decided to try to make some delish caramels! I was kind of a little leery about this because I have heard from many people that it can be kind of tricky to make. So, I didn't know what to expect...YiKes!!!! I thought that they turned out pretty well and taste yummy:)
In order to make the caramels you will need:
2 cups white sugar
1 1/2 cups corn syrup
2 cups of heavy cream
1 cup of butter
1 tsp of vanilla extract
Step 1: You will need to butter a 13x 9 inch dish.
Step 2: In a large heavy saucepan, mix the sugar corn syrup, 1 cup of cream, and butter. Bring to a boil, stirring often, then stir in remaining 1 cup cream. Heat, without stirring, to 242 degrees.
Make sure that you use a LARGE pan! I didn't and had to switch mid way through which I thought would completely mess my caramels up, but luckily it didn't!
Step 3: Remove from heat, stir in vanilla, and pour into prepared dish. Refrigerate.
Step 4: When cool, return candies to room temperature then cut into 1 in squares and wrap in wax paper.
Here comes the best part, enjoying and eating them:) They are really ooey, gooey, and messy, but oh soo good!!!
If you are leery of making caramels, don't be, especially with using this recipe! It is really pretty easy because if I can do it then anyone can:):):) Even though this recipe isn't a "new" and extensive recipe, caramels are classic and should be shared during the holiday!
