Caramel Candy Gold Bars
 
Sweet and buttery caramel candies.
:
Recipe type: Candy
Ingredients
  • 2 cups white granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 cup corn syrup
  • 1 cup butter, unsalted
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Grease a 12x15 inch sheet cake pan.
  2. In a medium pot, combine the white and brown sugars, the corn syrup, butter, heavy cream, and evaporated milk. Cook the mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly. When a candy thermometer reaches 250 degrees F, remove the pot from the heat and stir in the vanilla.
  3. Pour the caramel mixture into the prepared pan and let it cool almost completely (but still soft enough to cut) before cutting the caramel into small 1 inch long bars. Wrap each caramel bar in wax paper, twisting the ends.

      Thanks, Rosie! The best part is that even though they’re small, because they’re so rich and yummy, you only need one or two to satisf that sweet craving (well, I guess that comes with a big “depending on the person” disclaimer ;)

      For my readers’ convenience, here is the translation of “Anonymous” comment above: “you are so pathetic that when stealing recipes from foreign sites do not have the good sense to check the translation …. grief …. you and your evaporated milk”

      Anonymous, I’ve shown you respect in taking the time to translate and respond to your comment, something you failed to show me in making such a rude and unfounded accusation. As noted below the recipe, this recipe is adapted from Allrecipes, so you are wrong on both counts: 1) I didn’t steal it, and 2) It certainly isn’t from a “foreign site”, much less from Romania which I’m assuming you’re implying is its source of origin. Perhaps you should consider posting your comment on the “foreign site” which evidently DID steal the recipe.

      Thank you for your kind, encouraging words, Patsy – I really appreciate it. Compared to many bloggers I know, I’m actually very fortunate in that I rarely have experiences like this. For the most part people are very kind and that makes much easier, and more enjoyable! Thank you for your support and I’m so happy you found my blog! Happy baking and do let us know what you think! Best, Kimberly

    I know this is a year later, but it really is sad that you had to read or accept an email from someone like Anonymous. I am constantly look for new and creative recipes. Am I stealing? Ouch. I do look all the time and have just copies several of your recipes that I want to try at home. I have found some amazing recipies on the internet and love adapting them to my likes and dislikes. It is what I do. Thanks for sharing so many recipes. I love baking, but there is not a recipe out there that I am afraid of as long as I can find the ingredients. God bless Kimberly.

      Thanks, Connie! I love your adventurous spirit. I’m the same way – as long as I have the ingredients, I’m willing to take on anything! And I actually really enjoy finding and using more obscure ingredients and spices, so much fun!

    So far I like your recipe the best for my caramel apple hard cider that I am fermenting right now. Looking forward to mixing the caramel in after the alcohol sets in. If you have a apple butter recipe that is going to be my next search to make my apple butter hard cider. Let me know and thanks for the caramel recipe.

      Hi John, that’s fabulous! And yes, I do have a recipe for apple butter. And not just any recipe – this one’s for my 24-hour Crock Pot Apple Butter that has a depth of flavor you won’t believe. In my opinion it’s the best and I think it will work perfectly for your hard cider. Give it a try and let us know what you think!
