This was my first attempt at caramels and I have to say they turned out fantastic. I followed the directions to a T, something I don't normally do, and i'm so glad I did. It took about 45 minutes of constant stirring on medium heat, and like someone else said they increased in size. Luckily I had another pot on hand and for about 10 minutes I had two pots of carmel on the stove. I was able to mix them back together at the end and all was well. It seemed to take forever for them to get up near 250 and then suddenly the thermometer went over and I pulled them off the stove pretty quickly. I was afaid they'd be too hard but they were great. One reviewer mentioned to pay attention, make sure the dog's not underfoot, which made me laugh. However I took that advice ... you do not want to spill hot caramel on the stove, the dog, yourself or anything else. Disaster was averted by patience and attention. I think that's the key. Thanks for sharing this great recipe and to everyone who gave helpful hints.
