Best Caramels


2 c sugar
2 c corn syrup (light)
1/2 c butter (1 stick)
2 c whipping cream
Few grains salt
1 tsp. vanilla


Boil sugar and syrup in saucepan, stirring occasionally. When syrup is thick (245 degrees) add butter. Then add cream gradually so mix doesn’t stop boiling at any time. Stir constantly and rapidly to 240 degrees. Mix will be very thick and stick easily. Add salt and vanilla and pour into greased pan. Cool completely, then cut and wrap in waxed paper. Makes 7 doz.

Easy to make and when cooled, it becomes a family favorite with everyone helping to wrap the caramels.
