1 c. sugar
1 c. dark corn syrup
1 c. butter or margarine
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. vanilla
Line an 8 inch square pan with foil and butter the foil. Set aside. In a saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup and butter, and bring to boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Stop stirring and boil slowly for 4 min. Remove from heat and stir in milk. Reduce heat to medium low, and cook until candy thermometer reaches 234 degrees, (soft ball stage), stirring constantly. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla. Pour into prepared pan and cool. Remove from pan, cut into 1 inch squares and wrap in waxed paper. Yield 64 pieces.
Notes: My single complaint about this recipe is that my foil stuck to my caramels, so I may try parchment paper next time. You will need to adjust your candy thermometer to your altitude.
