Homemade caramels boast a new flavor twist with coffee and hazelnuts.
Updated Dec 6, 2006

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chopped hazelnuts (filberts)
  • 3/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons instant espresso coffee (dry)
  • 1 tablespoon hazelnut syrup (coffee flavoring)
  • 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
  • Chocolate-covered coffee beans, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Line 8-inch square pan with foil, leaving 1 inch of foil overhanging at 2 opposite sides of pan. Butter foil that lines bottom and sides of pan. Sprinkle hazelnuts in pan.
  • 2
    In heavy 3-quart saucepan, heat butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, dry coffee, hazelnut syrup and milk to boiling. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, to 245°F on candy thermometer or until small amount of mixture dropped into cup of very cold water forms a firm ball that holds its shape until pressed. Pour into pan. Cool completely, about 2 hours.
  • 3
    Remove mixture from pan, using foil edges to lift. Cut into 8 rows by 6 rows, separating caramels as they are cut. Garnish with coffee beans. Wrap pieces individually in plastic wrap or waxed paper.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Feeling nutty? Use your favorite nut in this recipe, and use vanilla for the hazelnut syrup.
  • tip 2
    Oh, what a gift--wonderful to give and even better to receive! Package these treats in holiday cellophane, and place in a clear coffee mug with a small bag of hazelnut coffee.
