Directions

  1. Butter a 9x13 inch dish.
  2. In a heavy saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar, brown sugar, 1 cup condensed milk and corn syrup. Heat to between 234 and 240 degrees F (112 to 116 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from the water and placed on a flat surface. Pour in remaining milk. Heat, without stirring, 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 prepared pan. Let cool before cutting into 1 inch squares.

this recipe says, "heat without stirring, to 250 to 265 degrees F", and it burnt! Thanks for helping me waste about $7, and all that time!

If I could give this recipe a negative star rating, I would! First it calls for a NOT stirring it, which makes absolutely no sense to me, although we did not stir it and it melted just fine. It also calls for a bunch of white sugar and barely any brown sugar so it comes out looking like a bunch of cooked grease. Ours did not set up, we followed directions exactly and ended up with a huge sticky mess to dump out. Guess I am going back to my old recipe for caramels....at least I know it works!
