Great for making at Christmas!


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup white Karo syrup
  • 2 cups evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup butter (not margarine)
  • 4 tsp. vanilla


In heavy duty 3 or 4 qt. pan, combine all ingredients except vanilla. Mix and stir constantly until 248 degrees F (Use candy thermometer). Once it boils, turn heat down a little, but keep it boiling. Then add vanilla and pour into buttered oblong glass pan; let cool. While it is still slightly warm in center, remove from pan onto a cutting board. Use a spatula to loosen sides from pan and help it let go of the dish. Lay out on board and cut strips off 3/4 inch and then into 3/4 inch size squares. Wrap each piece in wax paper.

I make these every year for gifts and people always wait for them! They are a huge hit! My recipes uses a pint of whipping cream and no corn syrup. makes them really creamy tasting! (so i hear because i don't eat dairy) :)

This sounds delicious. But . . . . . . What is Karo syrup please, and if I can't get it in Australia (I've never seen it here) is there a substitute.
Thank you.
