  • 1 1/2 C butter
  • 1 1/2 lbs packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 C light corn syrup
  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla


  • In a large saucepan dissolve the brown sugar and salt in the butter over medium heat.
  • Add the Karo syrup and mix
  • Pour the sweetened condensed milk in and stir.
  • Boil the mixture over medium heat until it hits 240 degrees F on a candy thermometer (remember candy temperatures are listed as sea level degree's so adjust according to your altitude - for example I lower all temperatures by 20 degrees F because I live so high up)
  • Add the vanilla and stir
  • Pour into a prepared large jelly roll pan (sprayed with baking spray) and let it set
  • Cut with a knife also sprayed with baking spray
