Creamy Toffee

Ingredients

14 ounces, 1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 pound butter
1 cup light corn syrup

Method

Set aside a 9" x 9" buttered pan.

Add all the ingredients in a 2 quart sauce pan and cook over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved.

washing sides

Wash down the sides.Add a candy thermometer and bring to a boil, stirring. Over a controlled heat bring to 260 degrees F.

Pour the hot mixture into the buttered pan, score while warm and allow the mixture to cool.

  1. The volume of the mixture will triple while cooking so you must constantly pay attention to the stove top.
  2. Bring your ingredients up to a boil slowly, you should not try to rush this process, otherwise you will end up burning the candy.
  3. Set aside at least an hour to make the caramels and have a place ready to set aside the candy to cool.
