BUTTERY NUT CARAMELS

 

  • Cooking Time:
  • Servings: 64
  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter (no substitutes!)
  • 2 1/4 cups packed light brown sugar
  • Dash of salt
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup coarsely chopped nuts

Directions

  • Butter a 9" square pan and set aside (do not over-butter or the caramels will be greasy).
  • Melt butter in a heavy 3-quart saucepan over medium heat; stir in brown sugar and salt. Stir in corn syrup.
  • Slowly pour in milk, stirring constantly until combined. Using a candy thermometer, cook to 248ºF (about 25 minutes), stirring occasionally (the mixture will be very bubbly).
  • Remove saucepan from heat and stir in vanilla extract and nuts. Immediately pour into prepared pan. Let cool completely before cutting into 1" squares.
  • Wrap each square in wax paper or plastic wrap and store in an airtight container at room temperature. Makes about 2 pounds (about 64 pieces).
