Recipe by Darlene Summers

Make your own caramels for candy apples. I don't know how long it takes to cook this to 244°--my time is approximated (a guess).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine sugar, 1 cup of the cream, syrup and butter in a large kettle.
  2. Boil for 20 minutes. Add remaining 1 cup of cream gradually (do not allow to stop boiling).
  3. Cook to 244° on a candy thermometer or until firm ball forms when small amount is dropped in cold water.
  4. Add vanilla.
  5. Pour into greased 9x13-inch pan.
  6. Cool, cut and wrap.
