To start, a buttered 8x8 pan.
Here's what I started with....cream, two kinds of sugar and a bit of salt.
Although this recipe is labor-intensive, I love that it fits into one of my favorite cooking categories--five ingredients or fewer!
You will need a candy thermometer....
The mixture will be heated three times to a certain degree. Basically, caramels are just burned sugar. : )
After it has been cooked up, you stir in vanilla and pour it into the pan.
Typically, I let them cool overnight before I cut them.
Cut into 1in pieces and wrap in waxed paper.
The recipe is a bit long with the boiling instructions! : ) If you would like it, let me know by comment or email and I will send it to you!
