“These are so good they taste like a name brand candy outlet when you use the nuts. You can make these without nuts too. I use more nuts than called for and use 2 cups total of half & half. Got this recipe from a friend and everyone loves it. I put them in the refrigerator until starts to set and then I take them out so they don't get too hard. Enjoy!! If for some reason they set too long and get hard, pop them in the microwave for a few for a nice warm chewy caramel.”

Directions

  1. Bring slow to a boil the sugar, corn syrup, butter and 1 cup of the half & half. Then gradually stir in 1 more cup of cream. Stir frequently as mixture begins to thicken. then constantly stir as it darkens.
  2. Cook to 254 degrees ( a little dropped into cold water forms a hard ball) I find this takes about an hour.
  3. Pour into buttered cookie sheet with 1/2 cup broken nuts scattered over bottom.
  4. Put in refrigerator until they begin to set and take out. When cold, cut into squares.
  5. Wrap individually in small pieces of saran wrap.
