- 1 cup of butter
- 4.5 cups of white sugar
- 1.5 light corn syrup
- 3 cups of whipping cream
Melt sugar and corn syrup in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil and boil for 5-7 minutes.

Mix very slowly into the boiling mixture ¼ cup at a time. Stir continuously.
Bring back to a boil and boil until temperature reaches 240 F.
