Hi! I am Lola from Lola Cookies & Treats in Leesburg, Virginia and we are making pecan bars today.
So, now it's time to make the caramel topping to go on our pecan bars and we do that on a stove top. We have our ingredients laid out already. We've got one cup of granulated sugar, and one cup of light corn syrup, Karo syrup, and a-half-cup of water.
We are going to stir those together. You will see the sugar quickly dissolves over the heat. This is on a low-to-medium heat. So, this is the sugar and corn syrup in water. Sugar is going to dissolve pretty quickly over the heat and it's going to start to look clear.
Now, it's just a matter of heating that up. You can continue to stir it occasionally. Keep it simmering. You may need to adjust the temperature. Make it a little higher or a little lower. You don't want it boiling in a big way, but you also don't want it not to be bubbling at all, because it takes a long time if it's not cooking fast enough.
We are going to keep it just like this stirring occasionally for up to an hour. So, keep an eye on it. You don't have to be standing right over it, but keep an eye on it and when it starts to turn to nice caramel color, we know it's time for the next step.
