Ingredients

  • 1/2

    lb. butter

  • 2

    c. light corn syrup

  • 2

    c. sugar

  • 2

    c. (15 oz. ea) sweetened condensed milk

  • 1/2

    c. sifted flour

  • 1

    tsp. vanilla

  • gourmet salt

Directions

In a heavy saucepan, melt butter. Add corn syrup and sugar, boil for 5 minutes over medium head, stirring constantly. Add 1 ½ cans sweetened condensed milk and keep stirring all the time. Mix flour with remaining milk, then add to corn syrup/sugar mix. Boil until mix darkens and reaches 240º or medium ball stage. Stir constantly or mix will stick and burn. Add vanilla and pour into 9×13” pan, sprinkle salt "Very lightly" on top of Carmel and allow to cool. Cut into 1” or smaller squares with a sharp knife. Wrap with wax paper. Makes about 5 dozen 1” pieces. To use for making chocolate turtles, cut caramels into smaller pieces and add ½ pecan to each piece and then dip into chocolate. When I have used for Turtles, I just spoon Carmel over pecans or walnuts on buttered surface or marble slab.
