These creamy caramels are melt-in-your-mouth perfection! This recipe is an old family favorite!! My mom earned many blue ribbons through through the years at our local county fair!

Ingredients
  • cooking spray (such as Pam®)
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 ½ cups heavy whipping cream, divided
  • ¾ cup corn syrup
  • ⅓ cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Directions
  1. 1. Spray a large loaf pan or 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. 2. Stir white sugar, 3/4 cup cream, corn syrup, butter, vinegar, and salt together in a heavy pot; bring to a boil. Stir in remaining cream. Cook, stirring constantly, until caramel is 244 degrees F (117 degrees C), or until a small amount of caramel dropped into cold water forms a firm but pliable ball, 10 to 20 minutes. Remove from heat and cool briefly.
  3. 3. Stir walnuts and vanilla extract into caramel; pour caramel into prepared baking dish. Cool completely, at least 1 hour. Turn baking dish over onto a flat work surface to remove cooled caramel from dish; cut caramel into serving pieces.
