This is a relatively easy recipe for homemade caramels. You can do all sorts of things with these delicious, creamy caramels… dip them in chocolate, eat them plain, or roll them in nuts. If you have some crisp apples, dip them in the caramel and serve to your guests!
For 60 pieces
Preparation time: 30 minutes
Prepare: A 9 x 13 baking dish. Cover the bottom with parchment paper, then coat with non-stick cooking spray.
1 cup corn syrup
1 cup unsalted butter
2 cups heavy whipping cream
2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla
½ teaspoon salt
Place all of the ingredients in a medium sized pan over low heat. Once all of the ingredients have melted, turn the heat up to medium.
Continue stirring the caramel until it reaches 245 degrees- use a candy thermometer– this will take at least 20 minutes.
Pour the hot caramel in a 9 x 13 baking dish lined with parchment paper.
Let the caramel set at room temperature for 24 hours.
Cut into squares and serve.
