How to make Amish Caramels

Step 1: Prepare an 8 x 8-inch baking pan by greasing it.

Step 2: Add the sugar, corn syrup, butter, and 1/4 cup of cream in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat while continuously stirring.

Step 2: Add the rest of the cream and continue to stir.

Step 3: Put the candy thermometer in the pan and while stirring continuously, allow the mixture to come to a softball stage. The thermometer will read 240 degrees F, the syrup will be transparent, and it’ll be boiling rapidly.

Step 4: The the thermometer hits 240 degrees F, take the caramel out of the heat.

Step 5: Immediately stir in the vanilla.

Step 6: Transfer the mixture in the prepared baking pan.

Step 7: Using a toothpick, pop any air bubbles that rise while the caramel is still warm. Then, let it cool overnight.

Step 8: Loosen the caramel block from the pan with a thin knife or small offset spatula. Place the block on a cutting board to cut the caramel into your desired size and shape. If desired, wrap individually in wax paper.
