OLD FASHIONED CARAMELS

This is a recipe that came from my aunt. We always make these at Christmas. They are the best ever!!! Great for Christmas gift boxes!!

Old Fashioned Caramels

1 c. brown sugar 1/2 lb. butter
1 c. white sugar 1/4 tsp. salt
1 c. light Karo

Stirring constantly, cook all the above in a heavy pan on medium heat. Bring to a rolling boil. Slowly add 1 can of Eagle Brand milk. Cook, stirring constantly, to soft ball stage (240 degrees). Add 2 tsp. vanilla and 1 c. black walnuts (if desired). Pour into a 9x13 pan. When cool, cut into squares and cut wax paper into squares and wrap each piece individually, twisting the ends of the wax paper.

This cannot be an old fashioned caramel recipe. Corn syrup was introduced into our food suppy in the 70s. I am looking for the real "old fashioned recipe"
