I am still going to hold my nativities hostage until Sunday. I’ll post all about them then. i promise. 😉
One of the things I love about Christmas time is making homemade candies and treats. You got my popcorn ball recipe yesterday. Today, I am going to share my favorite recipe for cream caramels. I love caramel and this recipe is especially good and easy to make. I have made this since I was a teenager. It was the recipe of an older lady in my church and people are always excited when I make these.
2 Cups Sugar
1 Cube Butter
2/3 Cup White Karo Syrup
1 Cup Light Cream (2 Cups Cream altogether)
Bring slowly to a boil, stirring constantly. Slowly add other cup cream, stirring well. Cook, stirring frequently. When it becomes dark and thick, stir all the time. Cook until it reached hard ball stage. (Or when it forms a hard ball when placed in cold water.) Pour in buttered pan and cool. Cut into pieces and wrap in waxed paper.
Can add 1/2 Cup chopped nuts before pouring in pan. Enjoy!
If you want to dip these in chocolate, I recommend freezing the individual pieces before dipping.
What Holiday Bliss are you celebrating today?

Oh, yummy!! Gonna have to try this one!!….This is a deadly time of year for diabetics, though, isn’t it? I may have to see about somehow lowering the sugar content, for my girl’s sake. 😉

I never would have thought to try and make caramels, but this seems like a great (and not too difficult) recipe. Thanks! (I can’t wait to see your nativities!)
