In the video below, Bianca Henry, the uber-organized Culinary Director of The Today Show, shows Amanda & Merrill a very simple way to make a basic butter caramel -- delicious alone, salted, or stuck on a stick (like a Sugar Daddy -- remember those? Or dip them in chocolate and voilà, a Sugar Mama!). No thermometers here, folks -- we're going on looks and looks alone.

Have fun with Bianca's recipe for Firm Caramel -- for many wonderful caramel things! To view, save, and print Bianca's recipe, go here and for a video tip on how to melt chocolate for those Sugar Mamas, sans double boiler, go here.

This week's video was once again shot and edited by filmmaker Elena Parker

Can you use Lyle's Golden Syrup in place of the corn syrup?

i made them today and the 13 yr old (who is never hesitant to call 'em like he sees 'em) said they were fantastic. i loved the flavor...texture-wise they're a bit on the soft and goopy side and look totally homemade...but those are all positives in my book. tasted a lot like the sugar daddy candies i remember from childhood that are referenced in the video.

I'm one who thinks that a salted caramel is the closest mankind has ever come to perfection.

Yum. Also delicious alongside after-diner coffee (or in it).

this looks truly fantastic and so easy. going to try right now... (and still thrilled about the no-thermometer thing).

Dangerous, very dangerous. I am afraid I would eat the entire batch in one sitting, then make more. But I think I'm up to the challenge.
