My Aunt Celia's Caramels

Every Christmas my Aunt Celia would make these homemade caramels so in honor of her I made them this year and to share with some of my very dear friends!

2 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. light corn syrup
1 c. milk
1 c. heavy whipping cream
1 c. butter or margarine
4 t. vanilla

Combine all the ingredients into a large sauce pan.  Cook slowly (low to medium heat), stir constantly (wooden or silicone spatula) until 248 degrees on a candy thermometer.  Pour into a buttered 9x13 glass dish.  Cool completely.  When firm turn onto board, cut into small squares and wrap individually in wax paper.

*Be prepared to stir for atleast 30-40 minutes*
