  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups White Karo
  • 2 cups Cream use 1/2 pint coffee cream & 1/2 pint whipping cream
  • 1 cup Butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp Real Vanilla


  • Mix sugar, Karo, half of cream and butter in a medium saucepan
  • Cook over medium heat. When mixture boils, stir in reso of cream. Do not let boiling to cease.
  • Cook to semi firm ball stage. (texture you want Caramels to be when you eat them)
  • Remove from heat and add vanilla
  • Pour into 9x13 buttered pan
  • Cool, Cut into cubes and wrap individual pieces in waxed paper.


Outside temperature will play a part how your caramel will turn out. I find a cold day and cooler inside temps work best! Enjoy y'all!
