I have so many Christmas memories of wrapping these caramels in wax paper for our neighbors. We would wrap plenty for ourselves but they would never last long. These are definitely my favorite when it comes to caramels, nothing else even compares. I’m not even sure how long my family has made these, but we have had them at Christmas time as far back as I can remember.
- 2 cubes real butter (not margarine)
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 cups Karo syrup
- Combine all ingredients in a large pan. Stir and bring to a boil and continue boiling until candy thermometer reaches 240 degrees. Pour into a large cookie sheet and cool. Once cooled cut into bite size squares and wrap in wax paper.
