    I have gone through 2 different recipes for caramels and neither turned out. Rather than waste more of my boss's money (not to mention my time), anyone have a good caramel recipe?

    I am going to dip some in chocolate and make some sea salt ones.

    Thanks in advance!!

    This one is straight out of Grewling's "Chocolates and confections" and I make it about twice a week.

    280 gr 33% cream

    1360 gr milk

    580 gr corn syrup

    680 gr sugar

    -cook to 112-114 celcius

    What happened to the other batches, what went wrong?

    well, I am ashamed to say that I tried Ina Garten's recipe and it was just WRONG with a big giant W!

    Who ever wrote it did not type the recipe correctly. They couldn't have, it was just horrible.

    The second one I felt like it had way too much cream. Even after chilling, it wouldn't come out of the pan. (which I lined with parchment and a light spray of cooking spray)

    I will give this one a try, thanks so much!!!
