Caramels with Evaporated Milk

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups corn syrup
  • 1 1/2 cups rich milk
  • 1 1/2 cups evaporated milk
  • 1 cup nuts
Mix the evaporated milk with the plain milk. Put 1 1/2 cups of the mixture with sugar and corn syrup in a saucepan. Stir and cook until it will form a soft ball when tried in cold water. Continue stirring, and add slowly 3/4 cup of the milk. Cook again until it forms a soft ball. Then slowly add remaining milk. Stir constantly all over the bottom of the saucepan so that the candy will not stick. The fire should not be too hot, as the mixture burns easily. When it forms a firm ball of the consistency you wish for your caramels, then remove from fire. Add vanilla and any kind of nuts you prefer. Scrape out into pan lined with butter. Cut when cold. Wrap in wax paper if your little heart desires.
