Total Time


1 cup sugar

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

2/3 cup light corn syrup

2/3 cup water

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa

1 (5-ounce) can (2/3 cup) evaporated milk

2 (1-ounce) squares semi-sweet baking chocolate

1 teaspoon vanilla

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Line 8-inch square pan with aluminum foil; butter foil in pan. Set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine all ingredients except vanilla in heavy 3-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 7-12 minutes or until mixture comes to a boil. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, 22-25 minutes or until candy thermometer reaches 245°F or small amount of mixture dropped into ice water forms a firm but pliable ball. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla.

  3. STEP 3

    Immediately pour hot caramel mixture into prepared pan. Cool 20 minutes. Score into 1-inch squares with tip of knife while mixture is still warm but has set on surface. Cool completely. Let stand at room temperature for 24 hours for easier cutting.

  4. STEP 4

    Remove candy from pan using foil; cut candy into squares. Wrap each square in waxed paper.
