Christmas Candy Recipe #4

I love caramels!! This recipe sounded so good and is pretty easy to make.

Chocolate Pecan Caramels Recipe


1 tablespoon plus 1 cup butter, softened, divided

1-1/2 cups coarsely chopped pecans, toasted

1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips

2 cups packed brown sugar

1 cup light corn syrup

1/4 cup water

1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk

2 teaspoons Spice Island® Pure Vanilla Extract


Line a 13-in. x 9-in. pan with foil; butter the foil with 1 tablespoon butter. Sprinkle with pecans and chocolate chips; set aside.

In a heavy saucepan, melt remaining butter over medium heat. Add the brown sugar, corn syrup and water. Cook and stir until mixture comes to a boil. Stir in milk. Cook, stirring constantly, until a candy thermometer reads 248° (firm-ball stage).

Remove from heat and add vanilla. Pour into prepared pan (do not scrape saucepan). Cool completely before cutting. Yield: about 2-1/2 pounds (about 6-3/4 dozen).
