How to Make Old Fashion Caramels


  • 1In a large pan melt butter, add corn syrup, sugar and half of the cream,stir to keep from burning, bring to a boil (I cook on medium high) but I know my stove and have been making these caramels for many years) when candy starts to boil, slowly add the rest of the cream stirring all the time cook til candy reaches 245*F then take off burner and add vanilla and chopped nuts.
  • 2Pour into a buttered 9X13 pan, let cool then cut into bit sized pieces and wrap in wax paper, my caramels don't last too long so some times they don't get wrapped.
