Bring back memories of childhood with these classic caramels made using just five ingredients – a great treat.

Ingredients

1
cup butter
2 1/4
cups firmly packed brown sugar
1
cup light corn syrup
1
(14-oz.) can sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
1 1/2
teaspoons vanilla

Directions

  • 1 Line 9-inch square pan with foil, extending foil over sides of pan. Lightly butter foil.
  • 2 Melt butter in 3-quart saucepan. Add brown sugar; mix well. Stir in corn syrup. Cook over medium-low heat until sugar dissolves and mixture is well blended.
  • 3 Remove saucepan from heat. Stir in sweetened condensed milk. Cook over medium heat for 20 to 30 minutes, stirring constantly, until candy thermometer reaches firm-ball stage (244°F.).
  • 4 Remove saucepan from heat; stir in vanilla. Pour into buttered foil-lined pan. Cool 30 minutes.
  • 5 When candy has completely set, carefully remove from pan by lifting foil. With thin bladed knife, cut candy into pieces, using a light sawing motion. Wrap individual pieces in waxed paper. Store in refrigerator.
