- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup whipping cream
- 1/4 cup molasses
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
How to Make It
Combine sugar, whipping cream, and molasses in a small Dutch oven; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar dissolves and mixture comes to a boil. Cover and continue to cook over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes to wash down sugar crystals from sides of pan. Uncover and cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture reaches soft ball stage (238°).
Remove from heat; add butter and vanilla (do not stir). Cool to lukewarm (110°). Beat with a wooden spoon until mixture thickens and begins to lose its gloss; pour into a buttered 8- inch square baking pan. Cut into 1-inch squares.
