For the past few years the kitchen in the Place Under The Pine has put out some prize worth food. But, there is one treat that has become infamous - the caramels, the holiday toffee, the 'Mackintosh Toffee' is a yet to be officially named. It is so chewy and delicious that everyone who has ever tried it has loved it, wanted more, and asked for the recipe.
Well, the recipe is locked away in the safe. Google 'homemade caramel recipes' and you will see all you need is a few simple ingredients (sugar, corn syrup, evaporated milk, butter, and vanilla). The trick may be in the actually cooking process - remember to keep stirring for 15 mins and take it off just at the right moment when it looks done. This video will help you see exactly what it will look like as you cook away.

Now remember, when you make a successful batch of caramels you will most likely have to make more, and more, and more...

You will be shocked at how fast a big pan of caramel can/will be eaten

There are a few ways you can package up your caramels - tiny bite sized pieces, small blocks with square indents, small blocks, or gigantic slabs.

After you have divided up your caramel it can be wrapped up in parchment paper.

Enjoy responsibly.
