Caramels Recipe: Soft & Delectable Caramels Tutorial
Who doesn’t love caramels? I’ve got a caramels recipe that’s not only darn delicious, they WON’T stick to y’er fillings!
This caramels recipe makes the soft kind of caramels. It’s best to keep them in the fridge and take them out a few minutes before you eat them. The only reason I keep mine in the fridge is for firmness – otherwise, they will keep fine in the cupboard.
These would make perfect shower favors or wedding favors! Why not add them to your candy buffet?

Butter a 9? x 13? inch baking pan. Set aside.
In a heavy bottomed (make sure it is heavy bottomed or the bottom will likely burn!) saucepan over medium heat, combine butter, brown sugar, condensed milk, corn syrup and salt (in other words, everything but the vanilla!). Bring to a gentle boil, stirring CONSTANTLY. Heat to between 240 to 248 degrees or until soft ball stage (when you drop a spoonful of the mixture into a glass of very cold water it will form a ball, but flatten once removed from the cold water.) The higher you bring the temperature, the firmer the caramel will end up being. Cook for two minutes at that temp. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla. (Photo below shows how it looks just after you add the vanilla.)
