Came out delis, only thing I did different is I added 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter because I love a buttery caramel.
can these be made ahead of time and frozen? I’d like to make them for gifts
Hi Kris, great question. I haven’t tried freezing them but I don’t see why that wouldn’t work.
Has anyone tried using brown sugar? What are your results? I am debating whether or not to try it with regular or brown sugar tonight.
I tried, came out a little lumpy, but still delicious!!!! Hardly cooled, stolen by little fingers:)
Does anyone have any thoughts on substituting plain yogurt for sour cream? I haven’t tried this recipe but it looks easy and very tasty
I just finished making these and they turned out beautifully! The end product looks and tastes deceptively labor intensive, but the recipe was so quick and simple. I look forward to adapting this recipe to some different additions. Also, while I don’t think it made a difference, I used a digital meat thermometer rather than one specifically for candy. They still turned out great. Thanks for the recipe!
Hi Lisa …, you can buy Vanilla not only as pods but also liquid ” Vanilla Extract” if you couldn’t find it you can use vanilla powder “vanilla sugar “.
These turned out fantistically! They’re so yummy (and addictive, can’t eat just one). I was quite pleased (and a little shocked) they turned out so well… I’ve had mixed luck with caramels in the past, but this time it worked out great!! Thanks for the wonderful (and fairly straight forward) recipes!
Hi Erwin and Becky, I don’t know why the sour cream works, but it just does.
Hi Lisa, You can safely assume that when you see a recipe (especially one that is clearly American – using cups instead of metric measurements) that calls for vanilla, we mean vanilla “extract”.
Ok, am I stupid or what, but what do you mean with “1 teaspoon of vanilla”? All I know is that vanilla comes in seeds from pods, or in essence or as sugar. Is this an American thing?
Please please enlighten me…, ’cause I would really love to make these.
If you cooked the sour cream at that high of a temperature wouldnt it curdle?
Mmmm, this sound tasty! What does the sour cream do, exactly?
These look amazing. How necessary is a candy thermometer?
I don’t have a candy thermometer. when do I stop cooking the sugar mixture?
