  1. Combine brown sugar, white sugar, butter, corn syrup, cream, milk and vanilla in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Heat, stirring occasionally, to 250 to 265 degrees F (121 to 129 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a rigid ball. Pour into an 8x8 inch pan. Let cool before cutting.

Great flavor, very sweet! A few notes: Cook to a temperature of about 240 for a chewy caramel; make sure NOT to use a non-stick saucepan; also make sure to grease the pan--cooking spray works great.


All that sugar, butter, cream to waste! I followed the recipe exactly, heated to 250 degrees and my caramel ended up rock hard. I bent two spatulas and a knife trying to get it out of the pan (which was HEAVILY buttered). The best part was when I was man-handling the candy to get it out of the pan and the caramel CUT me! Tip: Do NOT heat this to 250, follow the other reviewers and heat to 240 or less.


Wonderful! I made these for Christmas and got rave reviews. I cooked the mixture to about 238 deg. and it's chewy, but doesn't get stuck in your teeth. It's a little hard to remove from the pan.... make sure you coat the pan well w/ butter or spray.
