>The Anderson’s Soft Caramels Recipe

caramels

My neighbors gave us some caramels the other day for a Christmas present and my kids really liked them. So my daughter called and asked for the recipe so she could make them for her teacher.

ingrediants

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup nuts (optional); the one she made didn’t have this, and I am not fond of nuts in this type of food anyway

Directions:

  1. Combine sugar, butter and corn syrup in 3 quart microwave safe bowl.
  2. Microwave uncovered on high for 5 minuets or until butter is melted.
  3. Stir to dissolve sugar.
  4. Gradually stir in sweetened condensed milk.
  5. Microwave on high uncovered for 15 to 17 minutes, stirring every 3 minutes (always using a clean spoon) or until 232 degrees is reached. Check temperature frequently during last few minuets.
  6. Stir in vanilla and nuts.
  7. Pour into buttered 12 x 8 inch pan.
  8. Cool to lukewarm.
  9. Cut into 1-inch squares and wrap each caramel in waxed paper or plastic wrap (cut these ahead of time for ease of use).

Makes 2 pounds.
DO NOT USE THIS TO MAKE THINGS TO SELL FOR PERSONAL USE ONLY!!!!

    >These caramels look yummy. Will have a go at making these. Thing is we don’t use cup measurements. Will have to fathom that one out. I really do sympathize with you, migraine is the bane of my life.
