In a medium bowl combine butter and cream and microwave until butter is fully melted. Set aside. In a medium sauce pan over medium heat, combine water, vanilla, corn syrup, and sugar and stir gently stir to combine.
Bring to a boil and place a candy thermometer inside your pan. At this temperature, the sugar will take on a light amber color around the edges of the pan.
The moment the sugar reaches degrees F, carefully pour about a sixth of the butter and cream mixture then stir, using the base of the candy thermometer to incorporate it.
Repeat with the remaining cream and butter adding a sixth of it at a time then stirring. The sugar will bubble violently as you add the butter and cream — so do this carefully and slowly to prevent the mixture from bubbling over the sides of the saucepan.
By adding the cream and butter, the temperature will drop. Now, continue cooking for another 5 to 10 minutes, until the caramel reaches a temperature of degrees F.
This will create a soft caramel, if you want slightly harder caramels, bring the temperature closer to degrees F.
The moment the caramel reaches your desired temperature, pour into the prepared loaf pan. Cool 20 to 30 minutes then scatter the salt over the caramel.
Unmold the caramel. If the caramel is too soft to work with, place into the refrigerator 30 to 45 minutes to firm up.
Then, use a large sharp knife to cut into your desired shape. Wrap caramels in plastic wrap or waxed paper and enjoy immediately, or you can refrigerate or freeze for enjoying later.

Hi Dea — Happy to hear you enjoyed this caramel! It tastes great on top of my cheesecake as well :. Thank you so much for amazing recipes on your blog!
I just have a question about this caramel recipe. Is it possible to use maple sugar instead of coconut sugar?
Thank you in advance! If you do try that substitution, let me know how it goes! This worked SO well for me. I used Trader Joes coconut milk and brown sugar.
I did end im simmering for about 1hr20 but it made an amazing caramel. I also added a bit of bourbon in to make a bourbon caramel :.
This is very good however after its been in the frig, hard as a rock, due to the coconut milk I guess. Needed to be reheated a bit to use it.
I also noticed that when I reheated a few seconds in the microwave it seemed oily. Also tastes a bit coconutty for me. I used date sugar in place of coconut sugar.
It seemed the right consistency before refrigeration. Hi Betty — Yes, after refrigerating you will need to re-heat it and make sure to give it a good mix before serving!
What method do you suggest is the best for reheating? I made this tonight, but wont be using it until tomorrow so I am going to refrigerate it overnight.
Do you suggest putting it back in a pot to reheat or just microwaving until soft to pour on! Hi Mikayla — you could use either method to reheat it.
Maybe just let it come to room temperature. Sorry, can I leave out vanilla extract out of the recipe? How long would we need to cook this and what modifications are needed if we want to make caramel apples on a stick.

Jump to Recipe Pin Recipe. Must the two holes in the can be out of the water? I am worried that if the holes are under the water level, that the caramel will ooze out.
Hi Samantha, it is better to make the holes closer to the top of the can and fill the saucepan with water until it reaches halfway up the can.

Most helpful positive review lutzflcat Allstar. Rating: 5 stars. Very nice caramel sauce, but a word of caution.
Once you stop stirring, don't walk away from the stove, watch it VERY closely because mine turned dark amber within seconds.
Also, do use a larger pan as Chef John recommends in his video because when it starts to bubble, it climbs up the saucepan.
