Make Your Own Soft Caramels
I didn't think that I could make caramels at home. I thought that caramels were something that I would always have to buy at the store.
Just before Christmas, for the first time, I tried making caramels. . They were a lot easier to make than I thought they would be. With just a few simple ingredients, I was able to make soft chewy caramels that were a hit with my family.
Assemble the Ingredients
- 1 cup light corn syrup
- 2 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk, (such as Eagle Brand)

Homemade Soft Caramels Are Not just for the Holiday Season
I am not waiting until the next holiday season to make caramels at home! They are just too good.
Since caramels are my daughter's favorite candy, you can bet that we will be making them more often at our house. In the future. I plan to keep the ingredients in my pantry for the next time my daughter is craving freshly made caramel.
