Expert Tips

  • Have everything ready and prepped before you start cooking the sugar—prepare your pan and measure out all of your ingredients.
  • Keep a cup of water and a pastry brush next to the pan with the sugar, corn syrup and water to wipe down the sides so that the sugar doesn't crystallize.
  • Use a candy thermometer. Candy making is scientific and you need to reach the correct temperatures to ensure the correct end result. If you do not use temperatures, then your caramel will either be too hard or too soft.
