Creamy carmel candy

Sharing one of my favorite carmel candy recipes.
hope everyone is doing well..stop by sometime :)
Creamy carmel candy
Creamy Caramels
1 Cup sugar
1 Cup Butter or Margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup dark corn syrup
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
Line an eight inch square pan with heavy aluminum foil. Butter foil and set aside. In large sauce pot, place sugar, corn syrup, and butter. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil slowly for four minutes without stirring and then remove from heat. Stir in sweetened condensed milk. Return to medium heat and place candy thermometer in pot. Cook, stirring constantly, until thermometer reads Soft Ball Stage (238 degrees). Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
Pour into prepared pan. Allow to cool until able to handle. Cut into one inch squares and place each square (which will look like a blob at this point) in the center of a wax paper square, roll up and twist ends

  1. If you'd like to try making homemade caramels but are a little skiddish about it, check out Christy Jordan's tutorial at Southern Plate and enter Homemade Caramels! She'll walk you through it and you'll even see the phrase "(which will look like a blob at this point)" I have a hunch this is a recipe of Christy's that she is not getting the credit due her! And that's soo sad...
