Homemade Caramels

Rich, sugary caramels are easy to make, sweet to the taste and make great, simple gifts. Plus, a little goes a long way. These little individual wrapped sweets make a great pillow topper for overnight guests or a nice after-dinner sweet. Or fill decorative cellophane bags and tie with ribbon for Christmas presents.

  • 4 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 cups white Karo Syrup
  • 1 Can Eagle Brand Milk
  • 1 cup butter or margarine

Combine ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat, melting the ingredients together. Stirring constantly, slowly increase the temperature to bring the mixture to a boil. Continue to stir the caramel until it reaches a firm ball stage. Pour the caramel into a 18" x 12" greased cookie sheet. Once the caramel has partially set, cut the candy with kitchen shears or caramel cutter, then wrap the individual pieces in wax paper or waxed candy wrappers.
