  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Combine the buttermilk, sugar, butter, and corn syrup in a large soup pot.
  • Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
  • Reduce heat to low Stir constantly and simmer for about 8 minutes, until it turns a nice caramel color.
  • Remove from heat and add the baking soda and vanilla. It'll foam like crazy which is why you are using such a large pot.
  • Serve warm or store in a heat resistant, airtight container. I prefer to use a mason jar.
