  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.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I didn't know caramel candies could be so easy! Much easier than other recipes-- and more successful too! I didn't have whole milk so I tried 1% instead. They still turned out wonderful! Tha...

These are decadent! I had some issues with my candy thermometer, but I cooked it to about 250. I poured the mixture into a greased 8x8 pan. If I do it again, I will definitely line the pan ...

These are easy and delicious. Make sure you use a large enough pan, at least a 3 qt sauce pan, because when the sauce boils, it increases in volume quite a bit. We used both a candy thermometer...
