Number of Servings: 64


    2 cups brown sugar, packed
    1/2 cup brown sugar, packed (reserve for later)
    3/4 cup heavy cream
    6 tbsp. butter
    1/4 tsp table salt
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1/4 tsp vanilla flavoring
    1 1/2 cups confectionerís sugar, sifted to remove clumps


Combine brown sugar, cream, butter, and salt in a large heavy saucepan.
 Donít skimp on the size of the pan. Stir to integrate. Apply medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture comes to a healthy boil.

Reduce heat to low, and simmer at a slight boil for 15 minutes,
 stirring every few minutes to eliminate any boil-inhibiting skin
 which might form. Add the baking soda, remove from the heat, and mix it in well.
 Next stir in the vanilla and confectionerís sugar. Keep mixing until the sugar is 
well-incorporated. Then, and not a moment before, add the reserved brown sugar.

Pour into a square or rectangular pan such as an 8◊8 or 9◊9 inch,
 lined with parchment paper. Let cool to room temperature
 (a couple hours at least, more depending on weather). Cut into inch-square pieces, or less.

Serving Size: makes about 64 squares

    Very Good
    Almost, but not quite These tips should improve your results.
    Drop the pan to remove air and avoid a crumbly result, difficult to dip. Chill before dipping. Avoid dark brown sugar, use golden to lessen molasses tones and improve flavor. Increase salt and vanilla.
