Chewy caramels

My friend Barbie made these for me the other day. Yummy is all I can say, Thanks Barbie for sharing your recipe with me.

1 c. butter

1 lb. light brown sugar

1 14oz. can sweetened condensed milk

1 c. light corn syrup

1 pinch salt

1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

buttered 13 x 9 dish

In a heavy saucepan over med. heat, combine butter, sugar, cond. milk, corn syrup, and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Using a candy thermometer heat to 235-240 degrees. Once there cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Pour into buttered dish. Allow to cool completely at room temp. Remove from the pan cut into squares using scissors. Wrap individually in cellophane or waxed paper. It says it makes 32 candies but it made a lot more!
