from the Lion House Cookbook

1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 cup Karo Syrup
1 can sweetened condensed milk
Dash of salt
Nuts (optional)

Combine ingredients in heavy pan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly with wooden spoon. Keep at rolling boil and cook until it reaches soft ball stage. Pour into buttered pan. Cool then cut into squares and wrap each piece in waxed paper. We like to make the waxed paper pieces big enough to twist the sides so they look nice.

Makes about 75 pieces of candy.

Note: For extra fun, divide the caramel and add nuts. Once cooled, chill in fridge and then roll in melting chocolate. Great for Christmas or Valentine's treats for the neighbors.
