Pearl’s Walnut Caramels

Now is the season
with Christmas in the air, 
to start thinking about 
Christmas cookies, cakes and other goodies.

Home Made Candies

Right now, I’m thinking about candy, as in caramels and I have a great recipe if you’re a fan of caramel and walnuts.  

Pearl, a friend of Mom’s, gave her this delicious caramel recipe many years ago and Mom made it for Christmas every year.  It’s hands down one of the best homemade candies; rich with cream, having an excellent caramel flavor chock full of walnuts.  

Actually, they should be made all year instead of just at Christmas!  They will melt in your mouth!

Pearl’s Walnut Caramels


2 cups sugar
1 ½ cups corn syrup
1 cup butter
2 cups cream
1 cup English walnuts, chopped


In a 3-quart saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup and butter.
When mixture comes to a boil, add cream.
Cook to firm-ball stage on thermometer, 248 degrees.
Add walnuts, stir well.
Pour out on buttered 8” square pan.
When it cools down and is slightly wet, score into squares.
When firm, cut into squares.
Wrap each square individually in wax paper.
Store at room temperature.


Nothing beats fresh homemade candy for a treat!

We went for Sunday rides in the Model-T when my grandmother didn't visit. My parents liked the orange groves, miles and miles of orange trees always either in blossom or full of oranges. My parents had a picnic basket and a metal chest. In the metal chest were frozen cans of fruit on dry ice, and in the picnic basket were weenie and liverwurst and salami sandwiches, potato chips, bananas and soda-pop. The soda-pop was shifted continually back and forth between the metal box and the picnic basket. It froze quickly, and then had to be thawed.
