How To Make theresa's old fashioned caramels

  • 1
    1 cup granulated sugar ¾ cup corn syrup ½ cup unsalted butter 1 cup heavy cream ½ teaspoon vanilla extract INSTRUCTIONS Grease an 8x8-inch baking pan. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, add the sugar, corn syrup, butter, and ¼ cup of cream. Bring to a boil, stirring continuously. While continuing to stir, add the remaining cream. Insert a candy thermometer and while constantly stirring, bring to the soft ball stage. Around 240°F, the sugar syrup will turn transparent and boil rapidly. When it hits 240°F, remove caramel from the heat and stir in the vanilla. Pour into the prepared baking pan. While still warm, use a toothpick to pop any air bubbles that rise to the top. Allow cooling overnight. Use a thin knife or small offset spatula to loosen the caramel block from the pan. Transfer the block to a cutting board and cut into desired size and shape.
