3/4 lb. butter
1 1/2 c. white karo syrup
2 - 12 oz. cans of evaporated milk

dark chocolate, melted

Directions:
Directions:
In large pan on medium-low heat, cook the sugar, margarine, and white syrup. Stir constantly and bring to boil for 5 minutes. Slowly add one can of evaporated milk and boil 3 - 4 minutes, stirring continuously.

Add the second can of milk and boil/cook to hardball stage 250. Bring a stool to the stove because it takes about 30 minutes of constant stirring. Use thermometer to check to temperature, so the caramel doesn't get too hard.
Add vanilla and pour into greased 10 x 14 pan. (A smaller pan will give you a thicker caramel.)

Score/cut the caramel across the top as it is cooling to make it easier to cut when it is done. Once cool, cut into small pieces and remove from pan with a small spatula.

To Melt Dark Chocolate: Melt coarsely chopped chocolate in the top of a double boiler over hot, stirring until smooth. Remove the top part of the double boiler from the bottom. Place a caramel at the end of a long handled fork. Dip into the melted chocolate until well coated. Place on cookie sheet covered with wax paper to set. Refrigerate cookie tray to set caramels faster. Store in air tight container. Place in mini candy papers to serve on cookie tray.
