EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Have everything ready and prepped before you start cooking the sugar—prepare your pan and measure out all of your ingredients.

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.
