  2. Combine in sauce pan sugar, cream and vanilla.
  3. Cook for about 15 minutes on medium setting.
  4. Bring to a boil.
  5. Add butter.
  6. Keep stirring because mixture will boil over.
  7. After 45 minutes of cook time, drop some in test water from freezer. If it forms a ball, candy is ready.
