How to make it
- Grease bottom and sides of square pan, 8 x 8 x 2 or 9 x 9 x 2 inches, with additional butter. Spread pecans in pan, if using.
- Heat 1/2 cup butter, sugar, cream, and corn syrup to boiling in 3-quart heavy saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook, stirring frequently, to 245 degrees F on candy thermometer or until small amount of mixture dropped into very cold water forms a firm ball that holds its shape until pressed.
- Remove from heat and add vanilla, if using, stirring rapidly to incorprate. Immediatly pour into pan (over pecans, if using); cool.
- If desired, sprinkle tops of caramels with small amount of sea salt - you would not believe how delicious this is.
- Cut into 1-inch squares. Wrap individually in plastic wrap or waxed paper.
