Merry Christmas !! Just felt like sharing this.
Here's a wonderful Caramel recipe an 80 yr. old neighbor/pet client down the street gave me recently.
If you like making holiday candy & like both licorice & Caramel's, you'll love this..feel free to pass it on .
2 cups sugar
1 cup butter (use 1 Tbsp. less than 1 cup or a little too soft, Caramel should be firm)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups light corn syrup
Combine all ingredients & cook to "soft ball stage" or 242 degrees reading on candy thermometer.
Add 2 tsp. of Anise flavoring & 1/2 tsp. black paste food coloring (optional, just gives it black licorice color doesn't change the taste).
Poor into a 9 x 13 buttered pan (or Teflon pan no need for added butter)
Let cool, cut into 1" squares & wrap in waxed paper or Saran Wrap cut into 2" squares, twist ends & give as great stocking stuffers for Xmas or in Easter Baskets or for Halloween handouts. Or...eat it all yourself...LOL
Very YUMMY !!
