 Ingredients List

  • 1 cup of butter (2 sticks)
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 2 cups Karo syrup
  • 2 (12 oz) cans evaporated milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla


1. Generously butter a jelly roll pan (or a 9×13” pan if you prefer thicker caramels).
2. Add 2 sticks butter, sugar, and Karo syrup to a large heavy-bottom saucepan over medium heat. Stir over medium heat until mixture begins to boil, about 5-10 minutes.
3. Gradually add the evaporated milk, pouring it in slowly so that the mixture maintains a constant boil.
4. Stir the mixture regularly, scraping the sides until it reaches a firm ball stage (240 degrees F on a candy thermometer). This part takes patience-it could take about an hour to get to the firm ball stage”“but it”™s sooo worth it!
5. Once you reach 240 degrees F remove from heat. Stir in vanilla.
Pour caramels into a buttered pan. Refrigerate until ready cooled and hardened.
