1. Line two baking sheets with aluminum foil. Butter the foil.

2. Stir together the sugar, cream and corn syrup in an eight-cup glass measure or deep microwaveable bowl, stirring until the sugar lumps are dissolved.

3. Microwave on high for 13 minutes (this time varies according to microwave). Carefully remove; the bowl will be extremely hot.
