How to Make Old Fashioned Caramels
- Melt the butter, add the sugar, molasses and the milk and bring to a boil.
- Cut the chocolate in small pieces and add, stirring constantly until the chocolate is melted. Boil until the caramel forms a soft ball when dropped in cold water.
- Add the extract and the nuts and pour into a greased pan. Cool a little and when fairly firm, cut in squares.
