Directions

In a medium, heavy-bottom saucepan, combine sugar, evaporated milk, and heavy cream. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Add the corn syrup and continue cooking until the mixture registers 230 degrees F on a candy thermometer, about 10 minutes.

Stir in the butter and vanilla and continue cooking, stirring constantly, until caramel reaches 240 degrees F. Remove from heat and stir in salt; carefully pour into a lightly oiled, parchment-lined 9 by 13-inch baking dish.

Let the caramels cool at least 1 hour. Invert the caramels onto a cutting board covered with waxed or parchment paper. Cut into 1-inch pieces with a sharp, lightly oiled knife. Caramels can be wrapped in waxed or parchment paper. Store them at room temperature in an airtight container or in the refrigerator up to 3 weeks.

    My daughters and I watched the Unique Sweets episode where these caramels were made. We made them the next day. Extremely easy to make, hardly any time at all, and THE BEST caramels we've ever had...and we eat chocolate covered caramel all the time from stores. That's our favorite kind of candy. They are very gooey...not solid, but we melted down some semi-sweet choc in microwave, and used skewers to dip the pieces completely, placed on wax paper covered cookie sheet, and then put in fridge. The chocolate holds the shape and makes them easier to hold, plus adds an extra flavor. They won't be square or rectangle. They'll be warped blobs, but taste good! We then wrapped each piece in wax paper. our hands-on time was 1 hour from cooking to being done wrapping, not counting hour of cooling. Fantastic quality time project with kiddos. Just made baggies for all our friends. Getting ready to make more in a few minutes! Can't run out!! Love the salty taste!
