Hey, everybody! and today I'm going to be showing you guys and today I'm going to be showing you guys how to make some Via Caramels. These small chewy caramels make a great treat alongside coffee, a perfect holiday gift for the neighbors, and a great platter for serving at parties. They are simple, delicious, and (most importantly) home-made. So let's get started. OK. So here are the ingredients: 2 cups of sugar, 1 Starbucks Via Ready-brew packet, 1 and a half cups of molasses, 2 tablespoons melted butter, 2 cups of water, 2 cups of milk, and 1 tablespoon of vanilla. And here are the tools that you are going to need: 1 large pot, 1 candy thermometer, 1 wooden spoon, 1 paper towel, about 50 paper candy cups, and 1 cookie sheet. Begin by pouring your melted butter onto your cookie sheet. Using your paper towel, spread the butter around until the entire sheet is covered, and then set your cookie sheet off to the side. Combine your sugar, molasses, and half of your milk and water in your large pot. Heat your mixture over medium heat and stir the ingredients constantly. As the mixture slowly begins to heat up, your sugar will start to dissolve. Once your thermometer reads180 degrees [Fahrenheit], it's time to add your Via Ready-brew instant coffee. Tear open your packet and pour the grains into the pot. Continue to stir your mixture constantly, as the coffee begins to dissolve. When the temperature reads 230 degrees, add the remaining half of your milk and water along with your vanilla. Keep stirring, as your mixture slowly begins to heat back up. Once the temperature reaches 240 degrees, it's time to remove you pot from the heat. Pour your mixture onto your greased cookie sheet. Using your wooden spoon, push the mixture into the corners, and give the top a nice smooth finish. Let the mixture cool at room temperature until it's cold enough to handle. This should take about 15 minutes. Once the caramel has cooled, take a butter knife and cut a piece away from the corner. Using your hands, pull a 2-inch chunk off the cookie sheet and roll it into a ball. Forming the ball can be a little tough, but the warmth from your hands and the butter from the cookie sheet helps to smooth out any imperfection. Once you've made the ball, place it into a paper candy cup and repeat the process until you've cleared your cookie sheet. These smooth treats are rich in flavor and creamy in texture. They are truly simple to make and fun to eat, so I hope that you will enjoy this recipe, and that everybody gets a chance to try these lovely Via Caramels. So thanks, everybody......and enjoy!
