These are seriously the best caramels I've ever had. I make them for neighbors every year.
2 c. sugar
2 c. cream
1 c. butter
1 3/4 c. corn syrup
1 t. vanilla
Mix 1c. cream and remaining ingredients (except vanilla) in large pan. Bring to boil and slowly add rest of cream. Bring to soft ball stage. Remove from heat, add vanilla.
Pour into greased pan to set, then wrap.
Makes 1 cookie sheet of poured caramel.
