Hey y’all! Give a BIG Southern Fairytale Welcome to today’s spectacular guest foodie! Kyla, from Funky PolkaDot Giraffe!!
I come from a baking heritage that I have always appreciated
and I’m excited to share a little piece of it with you today!
This is my recipe box.
Given to me by my mother.
my Grandma Meyer’s homemade caramels recipe,
handwritten in her gorgeous handwriting.
They are a must have in my holiday treat plates.
I love my Grandma’s caramel recipe,
because it really easy and they turn out perfectly every time.
My one piece of advice -
Buy a candy thermometer.
It just makes the process go a little bit smoother.
Let’s get started!
2 c. sugar
1 1/2 cups dark corn syrup
2 cubes butter = 2 sticks (1 cube = 1/2 C)
1 pint half & half
Combine all the above and cook over medium heat
stirring constantly (and I mean constantly) – to a hard ball state.
My Grandma doesn’t give a measurement.
I add a couple of teaspoons.
You can add nuts.
Why ruin something so delicious?
Now pour into a BUTTERED 9×13 pan.
Cut & wrap piece in waxed paper.
Now you have the perfect recipe for adding
yummy caramels to your holiday treat plates for friends this year!
Even my dentist begs for more!
Thank you, Rachel, for having me here today to share
a recipe that is near and dear to my heart.
