What is your favorite homemade candy to eat? Do you make it yourself?
- Anonymous6 years agoFavorite Answer
Caramels or Toffee
1 c white sugar
1 c brown sugar
1 c white corn syrup (Karo)
2 c 18% cream
5 T butter
1 t vanilla
1/2 c toasted almonds, optional
Combine 1st 5 ingredients in heavy saucepan. Heat. Stir constantly to 248 degrees or medium stage(*)
Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla and nuts. Pour in buttered 8x8x2" pan. (**). Cool. Makes 1-3/4 lbs.
(*) If you don't have a candy thermometer, drop a bit of syrup in cup of cold water. If it forms a soft ball, it is soft-ball stage, forms a firmer ball, it's medium. If it forms fast it is hard-ball stage and if it hits the water and strings, it is crack-ball stage.
(**) I lay parchment paper on a cookie sheet and pour it on.
I would buy it but I make myself work for it (so I'll eat less).
Someone else might want to correct me on the different stages. Tkx
If you don't like toffee, caramels etc, then maybe someone else can use this recipe.Source(s): My recipe file.

Do cookie dough cheesecake bars count as candy? Lol
If not, I would say no bake Reese's peanut butter bars are my favorite. THIS recipe is incredible and super easy! http://sallysbakingaddiction.com/2013/07/02/no-bak...
