      I have made these many times and have a few suggestions. First line the chosen pan (I like 9x13) with a buttered foil. Stir and heat the mixture with the first cup of cream for about 1 hour. After adding the second cup of cream, cook until the mixture forms a soft ball in cold water or until a candy thermometer read 230 to 240 deg. After the caramels are cool, lift the foil out of the pan, turn over onto a cutting mat, take off the foil and they are easy to cut! They are fantastic caramels!

      Sorry I forgot to post this: I made these for Christmas gifts...which is somewhat a wonder as I don't do fussy things like that!!! They were soft and chewy and a wonderful caramel taste. If you are going to make these, make sure that your pot is big enough to handle the mixture as it does come up to a full boil. Every time you stir, it will come back up into a full boil. As I did not have a candy thermometer, I went for the 35 minute timing....but as these were really soft, they could have cooked a bit longer....just watch the colour. I wrapped them in waxed paper and placed them in small Xmas bags you get from the $1 store. My friend, said that they firmed up a bit more once refrigerated. It was a good thing I gave them away for gifts as I could have easily eaten them all by myself!!!
