Homemade Buttery Caramel Candy
This caramel is a little softer than the caramel candy you find in the store at Halloween, but more firm that a caramel dip. It's perfect for caramel filled chocolate bars or just as a buttery treat straight from the wrapper!
Caramel Candy Recipe, Easy Homemade Caramel Candy
(we use homemade)
Place sugar, 1/4 cup evaporated milk, and butter into a medium to large heavy bottom sauce pan. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently.
Place candy thermometer on side of pan, careful not to let it touch the bottom of the pan.
Add remaining evaporated milk and vanilla. Continue to boil, stirring constantly to prevent scorching.
Boil until mix reaches 240°F. Remove from heat and immediately pour into buttered dish.
Allow to cool overnight or for at least 4 hours before cutting.
Wrap in wax paper pieces or keep covered in dish at room temperature for up to 3 days.
This caramel makes a great candy filling for homemade chocolate bars too!
** Can be stored in the fridge for up to a week or the freezer for up to 6 months.
