REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I've been searching for a creamy, chewy caramel, and this is the best and yummiest by far! It was also easy enough for my 11 YO to make a batch. We didn't take it to the hard ball stage--we wanted ours softer. We also used a foil 1/2 sheet cake pan, lined with parchment paper. So much cleaner & easier! Cut in to thin strips with a large knife, then into bite size pieces with my kitchen shears. Awesome! Time consuming to wrap, but a good project for the kiddos!

The recipe was easy enough, but it took a lot longer than 35-40 minutes to get to hard ball stage, unless you cook at medium, not low.

I've tried many caramel recipes & this one is the best by far! I make many batches every Christmas to give to friends and get rave reviews. I would highly recommend this recipe.

The carmels take a while to stir and they are worth it. These delicious creamy carmels were a Christmas hit. They melt in your mouth and are so much better than store bought caramels. Oh, and don't forget to butter the pan before putting it in!
