Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup dark corn syrup
  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preparation

  • 1 Line an 8-inch square pan with parchment paper then spray with cooking spray and set aside.
  • 2 In a large heavy saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup and butter. Over medium heat, bring mixture to a boil, stirring constantly, and then allow to boil for 4 minutes without stirring.
  • 3 Remove from heat; stir in milk, reduce heat to medium-low, then insert a candy thermometer and allow to simmer until mixture reaches 240 degrees F on a candy thermometer.
  • 4 Remove from heat; stir in vanilla (or other flavoring) then pour into prepared pan and chill until firm, about an hour.
  • 5 Use parchment paper to lift candy out of pan then cut into desired size pieces. Wrap individually in waxed paper; twisting ends, if desired.
