Caramels

Melt in Your Mouth!

Ingredients:


1 cup white corn syrup
2 cups granulated sugar
3 cups heavy whipping cream (for the creamiest results use cream that has no additives, including no carrageenan)

Directions:

Blend corn syrup, sugar and 1 cup of cream in a heavy pan, and cook to the chewy ball stage (test in a bowl of ice water).
Add second cup of cream and repeat cooking to the chewy ball stage.
Add third cup of cream and repeat cooking to the chewy ball stage.
The candy becomes a lovely caramel color as it cooks.

Pour into a buttered 9x13 pan.

Cool. Turn out onto cutting board, cut into small squares, and wrap individual pieces in waxed paper.

Optional:

Place pecans (or any other nut) in the bottom of the buttered pan. Pour Caramel over the nuts. Cut, then lay squares on waxed paper and pour melted semi sweet chocolate chips or melted milk chocolate (I prefer Merkins Marquee Chocolate) over each individual square. Pack in an airtight container once the chocolate hardens.
