What You Need To Make These Caramels

  • Pot (Sauce Pan)
  • Candy Thermometer
  • 9X13 inch Baking Pan
  • Wax Paper For Warapping Caramels
  • Parchment Paper

Ingredients To Make Soft Chewy Caramels

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream (240 grams)
  • 2 cups corn syrup (680 grams), any type will work) but I use light
  • 1/2 cup salted butter (113 grams) or 7 tablespoons
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

How To Make Chewy Caramels?

  • Prepare a 9X13 inch pan by lining the bottom and sides with parchment paper, if you don’t have parchment you can the pan with butter.
  • Add the sugar and corn syrup into a pot over medium heat stirring constantly until the mixture begins to boil, about 6-8 minutes until the temperature reaches 118°C (245°F).
  • Line a 9×13” pan or jelly roll pan with parchment paper or generously grease with butter. Either size pan will work–9×13” will yield thicker caramels.
  • Pour in the heavy cream slowly followed by the butter and continue to cook until the mixture reaches its soft state at 117°C (243°F).
  • Carefully remove the pot from the heat and the vanilla extract and stir to combine.
  • Pour the liquid caramel into a lined or greased baking pan.
  • Place the caramel into the refrigerator and chill for at least 8 hours or overnight until hardens in a solid-state.
  • Remove the Carmel slab from the refrigerator and cut it into desired-sized pieces and wrap using wax paper.
  • Enjoy your homemade soft chewy caramels.
