Caramels That Won’t Fail
Makes about 200 one-inch squares
2 sticks butter (or 1 cup)
1 1/2 cups Karo syrup
4 cups sugar
2 cans evaporated milk
Butter a jelly roll pan, set aside. In a large pot, melt butter, add Karo syrup, then sugar. Cook until boiling. Slowly add evaporated milk so candy won’t stop boiling, stirring continuously with a wooden spoon. Cook to firm ball stage (235º on candy thermometer. Pour into buttered pan and cool 5 hours or overnight. Cut in 1″ squares, wrap in wax paper, and eat or give away. This recipe is also good for caramel apples. FYI.
