Instructions
Grease an 8x8-inch baking pan.
In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, add the sugar, corn syrup, butter, and cup of cream.
Bring to a boil, stirring continuously.
While continuing to stir, add the remaining cream. Insert a candy thermometer and while constantly stirring, bring to the soft ball stage. Around 250F, the sugar syrup will turn transparent and boil rapidly.

Around 320F, the syrup will darken slightly and smell caramel-like. You can proceed to the next step any time after the syrup reaches 250F and before it reaches 325F.

Remove caramel from the heat and stir in the vanilla. Pour into the prepared baking pan.
While still warm, use a toothpick to pop any air bubbles that rise to the top. Allow cooling overnight.
Use a thin knife or small offset spatula to loosen the caramel block from the pan. Transfer the block to a cutting board and cut into desired size and shape. Wrap individually in wax paper if desired.
