Grandmas homemade caramels…to die for, for real!!!

Grandmas homemade caramels

2 cups canned milk
½ c butter (real butter) + extra for pan
2 c sugar
2 c light corn syrup
1/3 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla
2 c chopped nuts

Melt extra butter into a 9x13 pan. Put milk and butter in a small pan and heat until butter melts. In a separate pan mix sugar, corn syrup and salt, cook to firm ball stage (245-250 degrees) stirring often. Stir in milk mix slowly so boiling doesn’t stop. Cook to firm ball stage. Remove from heat add vanilla and nuts. Pour into pan when cool cut into squares and wrap individually. 

It's really important to have a candy thermometer. Temperature is the most important thing.
