Soft Chewy Cream Caramels

Buttery homemade caramel candies that will outshine any grocery store version!



  1. Line an 8×8 pan with non-stick foil. Set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in a heavy saucepan. Stir in the sugar, cream and corn syrup. Mix and bring to a gentle boil
  3. Insert a candy thermometer and continue boiling until the candy reaches 247-248 degrees. If you like your caramel slightly firmer, let cook to 250 degrees. This can take 45 minutes to an hour, so be patient.
  4. Add the vanilla and stir to combine. Pour into prepared pan.
  5. Allow to cool, then lift caramel from pan using the foil as a sling. Place on a cutting board and slice into 1-inch squares. Wrap in wax paper.
  6. These freeze well.


Be very cautious as the boiling caramel is extremely hot and can burn your skin.
