Sugar, glucose, cream, butter, baker's chocolate, nuts and vanilla is all that you need to make this chocolate nut caramel recipe.
Ingredients
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1½ cups glucose (pure corn syrup)
  • 2 cups cream
  • 1 cup butter
  • 3 or 4 squares Baker's Chocolate
  • 1½ cups English walnut meats
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Put the sugar, glucose, one cup of the cream and the butter over the fire; stir and cook until the mixture boils vigorously, then gradually add the other cup of cream. Do not allow the mixture to stop boiling while the cream is being added.
  2. Cook until the thermometer registers 250° F., stirring gently—move the thermometer, to stir beneath it—every four or five minutes.
  3. Without a thermometer boil until—when tested by dropping a little in cold water—a hard ball may be formed in the water.
  4. Remove from the fire, add the chocolate and nuts and beat until the chocolate is melted.
  5. Beat in the vanilla and turn into a biscuit pan, nicely oiled or buttered, to make a sheet three-fourths an inch thick.
  6. When nearly cold turn from the pan and cut into cubes.
