Homemade Caramels


This makes alot of caramels, I cut the recipe in half and that was plenty.

 1 cup butter
 2 1/4 cups brown sugar, firmly packed
 1/8 teaspoon salt
 1 cup light corn syrup
 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
    1 teaspoon vanilla

    Melt butter; add brown sugar and salt, mixing well.
   
    Stir in corn syrup.
   
    Gradually add milk, stirring constantly.
   
    Cook and stir over medium heat until candy reaches firm ball stage (245 degrees).
   
    This will take 12-15 minutes.
   
    Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
   
    Pour into greased 9x13 pan.
   
    Let cool.
   
    Cut into 48 pieces with a sharp knife.
