Cream Caramels

2 cups sugar

2 cups corn syrup

1/2 cup butter

2 cups evaporated milk 1 teaspoon vanilla 1/4 teaspoon salt

Put sugar, syrup, salt and butter into sauce pan and place on fire. Stir till it boils to a clear thick consistency; stir in gradu-ally so as not to stop boiling the evaporated milk. Stir con' stantly, cook to the firm ball stage. Add vanilla and pour into buttered pans. When cold, cut and wrap in waxed paper. Makes two pounds.

Nut Caramels

Mix together - 1 cup granulated sugar 1 cup white syrup 1/2 pint sweet cream Pinch of salt

1 ounce of bitter chocolate (small pieces)

1 tablespoon butter

Boil for ten minutes, stirring almost constantly, as chocolate burns quickly; do not beat, however, as this will make it granu-lar. Add gradually another half pint of cream, until a few drops of the syrup in cold water form a rather firm ball, that is, just a little firmer than the soft-ball stage. Add vanilla and half a cupful of nut meats before removing from fire. Pour into small buttered tin so that layer will be three-quarters of an inch thick.

It is best not to cut this candy until twelve hours after cooking. Cut in squares and wrap in wax paper.
