Caramels That Won’t Fail

Dorothy Schettler
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.

      That’s so awesome about the newspaper column! How fun!

      Btw, are you guys living in Menlo park permanently? Because I think we’re moving to the bay area after Mark graduates in a year and a half. I’m still deciding if I’m excited about that or not, but if you guys are around then it would mean about 15+ points toward excited.

      Thanks for these great boxes and the caramel recipe. I went to the store to get the ingredients and they have two sizes of evaporate milk. What size are the cans you use?
