Caramel is a substitute for chocolate when we are unable to have it and it is very easy to make at home.

These decadently sweet pastries are typically served as a Christmas dessert, but there’s no need to stick to that tradition.

How to make

Step 1:

Grease the baking pan. Add the sugar, corn syrup, butter, and ¼ cup of cream in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat and boil while stirring continuously, then add the remaining cream and stir well.

Step 2:

Insert in a candy thermometer while constantly stirring, when it hits 240 degree Fahrenheit remove caramel from the heat and add in the vanilla, then pour into the prepared baking pan.

Step 3:

Use a toothpick to burst any air bubbles that rise to the top while stirring. Then leave it to cool overnight. Use a small offset spatula to loosen the caramel block from the pan.

Step 4:

Place the block to a cutting board and cut into desired size and shape. Then wrap each of them in a wax paper if desired.

You will need a candy thermometer for this recipe.
