Menu Monday

People keep telling me that they want this recipe. It is what I make for Christmas to hand out to neighbors so it is definitely more of a winter recipe but here goes.

Cinnamon Caramels
1 can condensed milk
2 cups sugar
1 cup butter
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cup Karo syrup
1 tsp cinnamon oil
1 tsp red food paste

Mix first 5 ingredients in a heavy sauce pan. Cook until it reaches 232 degrees. Stir often or it will scorch! Add Flavor and color and pour into a buttered jelly roll pan. Cool and cut into strips and roll in wax paper or parchment.

I got this recipe from a neighbor of mine. Thanks Julie! She always makes hers licorice flavored, which you can also do by adding the same amount of anise flavoring instead of cinnamon. Oh and black food coloring paste. I decided to experiment one year and try cinnamon. Everyone loves them.
