  • In a heavy saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar, brown sugar, 1 cup condensed milk and corn syrup. Heat to between 234 and 240 degrees F (112 to 116 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from the water and placed on a flat surface. Pour in remaining milk. Heat, without stirring, to 250 to 265 degrees F (121 to 129 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a rigid ball. Pour into prepared pan. Let cool before cutting into 1 inch squares.

If I could give this recipe a negative star rating I would! First it calls for a NOT stirring it which makes absolutely no sense to me although we did not stir it and it melted just fine. It also calls for a bunch of white sugar and barely any brown sugar so it comes out looking like a bunch of cooked grease. Ours did not set up we followed directions exactly and ended up with a huge sticky mess to dump out. Guess I am going back to my old recipe for caramels....at least I know it works! Read More

I loved this recipe though I tweaked it a bit. I lost my old recipe for caramel when my computer crashed. I only use it to coat granny smith apples before coating them in chocolate. I left out the additional cup of sweetened condensed milk. I stirred until it was at soft ball stage then coated the apples. This doesn't get break-a-tooth hard when you refridgerate it and was perfect. A tip for cleaning: run HOT water over the pan it'll gradually melt the caramel away. Cold water just makes it that much harder to get clean. Read More
