Hot water is going to be your friend here. Boil water in the pot. Soak your whisk in there too. The sugar should dissolve.

thanks! I was thinking boiling was going to be the answer -- but I don't want to accidentally make more caramel :)

Just fill the pot up with water and a few drops of soap. Boil it for awhile until the all the burnt sugar comes off form the sides of the pot.

thanks to both -- it worked like a charm ... now if I could just speed time so the caramels cool enough to cut and eat them!

You are very welcome. I accept payment via cash, check or caramels. ;)
