Chewy caramel candy is usually delicious, but if you add clotted cream, my Homemade Caramel Candy recipe (with Clotted Cream) gets taken to the next level!

Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup (6oz/170g) white sugar
  • 2/3 cup (4oz/115g) brown sugar
  • 5 tablespoons (3 1/2 oz/100g) golden syrup
  • 1 cup (8oz/225g) clotted cream
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
Instructions
  1. Butter and line an 8x8 inch square tin with parchment paper. Set aside.

  2. In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, add all of the ingredients. 

  3. Over medium-low heat, stir until the sugars dissolve.

  4. Once the sugar has dissolved, bring the mix to a simmer for roughly 3 minutes. You can see if the fudge is ready by dropping a little into a cup of cold water. If a soft ball is formed, it is ready. (If you have a candy thermometer until the temperature reaches 116 °C / 240 °F) 

  5. Remove from the heat and beat until the mixture becomes thick, around 2-3 minutes.

  6. Pour into the tin and leave for 30 minutes. Mark into squares with a knife and leave until set. Cut into pieces and store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 weeks.
