Heavenly Caramels

I remember the day that Karen Bennion and Lynn McRae brought these into the composing room at NAC in Salt Lake City (way back in the late 70's). They were so good and better than any caramel I had ever tasted. I was grateful for the recipe that they simply recited to me. They had gotten together over the weekend and dreamed this up together.

Enjoy!

NOTE: I don't like to use Corn Syrup any more so I have adjusted the recipe to 3 1/2C sugar instead of 2C sugar and 1 1/2C karo light syrup -- but you are free to choose whatever you like.
