Chocolate Caramels

Amazing that a chocoholic like me, had to be reminded by hubby, that there is such a thing as Chocolate Caramels.... Thank Goodness for Nestle's recipes and ingredients.... You have to know, that I had to double the recipe and it turned out perfect.  I googled a recipe and found this wonderful one, on Nestle's Chocobake site. It is creamy & very easy.
Hubby, family and our friends love it and that makes me smile......

Ingredients
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter 
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 can (14 oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 2 packets (1 oz. each) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® CHOCO BAKE® Pre-Melted Unsweetened Chocolate Flavor
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Directions
LINE 8-inch-square baking pan with foil; grease.

COMBINE butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and corn syrup in heavy-duty, medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil and butter is melted. Add sweetened condensed milk and Choco Bake. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, for 25 to 35 minutes or until mixture reaches 245° F on candy thermometer. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla extract. Immediately pour into prepared pan. Cool at room temperature. Makes about 2 1/2 pounds.

LIFT from pan; remove foil. Cut into about 1/2-inch squares or size desired and wrap individually in plastic wrap, twisting ends. Store in refrigerator or at room temperature; use within 7 to 10 days.Adapted from

  1. Hi,

    This is really a delicious recipe. These caramels incorporate the chocolate straight into the recipe, for a deep dark chocolate taste. These are fun and hearty treats for a family to enjoy on special occasions. Thanks a lot.
