These are easy and delicious. Make sure you use a large enough pan, at least a 3 qt sauce pan, because when the sauce boils, it increases in volume quite a bit. We used both a candy thermometer and the cold water method. I don't think you want to go all the way to the hard ball stage if you want chewy caramels. We used the soft ball stage, which was 252 on our thermometer. We also lined the 8X8 pan with wax paper, letting it hang over the sides of the pan, for easy removal of the candy. A pizza cutter was handy for cutting the candy once we had cut it into strips with a knife.
