Also another Christmas time favorite! I remember helping my mom "test" the caramel by dipping a spoonful into a cup of ice water. And it is so smooth and creamy compared to store bought ones!

Christmas Caramel

1 lb. butter
2 lbs. brown sugar
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 pint light Karo Syrup

Combine them all in a big pot. Stir constantly to melt and combine. Cook and stir until it reaches the "soft ball" stage. I don't know the temperature for it but to test you will need a cup of water with ice in it and several spoons. Scoop some caramel with the spoon and let it sit and cool in the water. If you can mold it into a ball and it keeps it's shape for a second and forms easily then it's ready!
