    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    I have listed the yield at 64 pieces sliced at 1-inch squares you may of coarse slice to desired size, you have the option of making the caramels soft or firm by adjusting the cooking time --- you will need a candy thermometer for this.

      This caramel was sweet, smooth, soft and delicious. Next time I will buy salted butter because it needed a bit of bite to help the flavor along. I mixed in the maple syrup and really enjoyed the hint of maple. After it was poured in my pan I sprinkled some sea salt on top of the cooling caramel and that helped it significantly! Will make it again! I used some of the caramel in my apple pie that same day Apple Caramel Pie.
