Recipe for family meals :

Grandma's Caramels

It is many years since Hub-UK was first launched. It has been created from recipes contributed form all over the world, from professionals and amateurs alike. A great many of the recipes do not have any details as to who sent them in or from where they came. It would be a shame not to share them with you for this reason alone.

This recipe is one such recipe. If you know where it originated, or perhaps it is even yours, let me know and I will add the necessary credits and acknowledgements.

"The most indispensable ingredient of all good home cooking - love, for those you are cooking for" ~ Sophia Loren.


2 1/2 tbsp butter
2 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp molasses
1/2 cup condensed milk
4 square unsweetened chocolate
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup nuts, chopped


  • Melt the butter, add the sugar, molasses and the milk and bring to a boil.
  • Cut the chocolate into small pieces and add, stirring constantly until the chocolate is melted.
  • Boil until the caramel forms a soft ball when dropped in cold water.
  • Add the vanilla extract and the nuts and pour into a greased pan.
  • Cool a little and when fairly firm, cut into squares.
