2 cups sugar
1 1/3 cups of light corn syrup
3 cups of light cream
1¼ teaspoons vanilla

Place the sugar, syrup and 1 cup of the cream in a cold electric skillet.

Set the control for 325, and stir until all

ingredients are combined. Continue stirring as the mixture cooks.

When the little light goes out, add 1 cup of cream,slowly, stirring constantly. Cook until the light goes out again(and the mixture will thicken). Stir constantly.

Add the last cup of cream, slowly, continuing to stir. The light will come on, so continue stirring until the light goes out.

Add the vanilla. Stir.

Pour into a 9" x 9" cake pan. Do not scrape candy

out of skillet.

Cool before cutting. Wrap the squares of caramel

in wax paper.

My grandmother makes everything in an electric skillet.

Sounds interesting, probably will be even more interesting when I try to make them. I am excited to give it a try though!
