Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 cup granulated white sugar
2/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 tablespoon (13 grams) butter, diced

Materials needed:

8×8 baking dish
Aluminium Foil roll
candy thermometer
Spatula
Whisk
Wax paper
Pastry brush
Medium sized heavy-bottomed saucepan

Method :

Step 1

Prepare the caramel mold. Line an 8×8 baking tray with foil such that excess foil hangs over the edges. This is done so that we can easily lift the set caramel later. Butter the foil well.

Step 2

In a heavy medium sized saucepan, stir together the cream, sugars, and corn syrup. Place the saucepan over medium high heat and bring to a boil, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Once the mixture boils, with a heatproof pastry brush dipped in warm water wash down the sides of the saucepan to remove any sugar crystals that are being formed during boiling.

Step 3

Clamp a candy thermometer to the side of the saucepan. Boil the mixture over medium high heat without stirring until the temperature reaches 250 degrees F. Swirl the pan periodically. 

Step 4

Remove the pan from heat and stir in the vanilla extract, salt, and butter. Pour the caramel into your prepared pan and let cool, undisturbed, until firm for atleast 2-3 hours.

Cut the caramels to small squares.

Note:

Store in air-tight containers between wax papers at room temperature or refrigerated.

Brush the sugar crystals that form during boiling with a pastry brush dipped in hot water. If u don’t do so ur caramel will be grainy

Do not stir them after the sugar has melted. Just swirl then once a while.

Use a wooden spoon to prevent the caramel sauce from sticking.

The caramels can be wrapped with wax paper with either sides twisted exactly like how chocolates are wrapped in the wrapper.
