How to Make Caramel Nut Candy

  3. Remove from heat. Add vanilla and nuts. Combine well. Let stand until mixture stops bubbling.
    Pour into buttered 8 or 9 inch square pan.
  4. Cool at room temperature, then chill in refrigerator until caramel hardens.
  5. When caramel is ready to cut, set pan in warm water to loosen from bottom and sides of pan. Turn into cutting board. Cut into small squares with a sharp knife, using a saw-like motion.
