I think you caramelized it to long.It should be light brown.Cooking to soft ball stage on a candy themometer is about 237 degrees.

I'm sorry this did not work out for me. The sugar on caramelising became stone hard and I added in the hot milk and orange juice. What resulted was orange coloured stone like hard sugar stuck together. If you could explain a few things: what is soft ball stage, upto when to caramelise, I wouldn't mind trying this once more. Sorry again.
