Ingredients:

Directions:

Melt butter in a heavy saucepan. Add brown sugar and salt. Stir until completely combined. Stir in corn syrup and mix well. Gradually add milk, stirring constantly.

Cook over medium heat. Stir constantly until caramel reaches the firm ball stage, at 245 degrees F on a candy thermometer.

Remove from heat and mix in the vanilla. Pour into a buttered 8x8 glass pan.

Allow to cool and then cut into squares. You may find that scissors work well for this. Wrap each caramel in a piece of wax paper, twisting the ends to secure. Enjoy!

Makes about 2 1/2 pounds

Consider adding some spice to your caramel candies. Infuse your cream and butter mixture with a bit of cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, allspice, cloves, or anise. I like to add a bit of rum extract during the holidays.
