Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon plus 1/4 cup butter, divided
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped almonds, toasted

Nutritional Facts

1 caramel equals 94 calories, 4 g fat (2 g saturated fat), 10 mg cholesterol, 33 mg sodium, 14 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 1 g protein.

Directions

  1. Line an 8-in. square dish with foil; butter the foil with 1 teaspoon butter. Set aside.
  2. In a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, corn syrup, salt and remaining butter. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium-low; boil gently without stirring for 4 minutes.
  3. Remove from the heat; slowly stir in cream. Return to the heat; cook, without stirring, over medium-low heat until a candy thermometer reads 245° (firm-ball stage). Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla and almonds.
  4. Pour into prepared pan (do not scrape sides of saucepan). Cool completely. Using foil, lift caramel out of pan. Discard foil; cut caramel into squares. Wrap individually in waxed paper or foil; twist ends. Yield: about 4 dozen.
Editor's Note: We recommend that you test your candy thermometer before each use by bringing water to a boil; the thermometer should read 212°. Adjust your recipe temperature up or down based on your test.
