  6. Optional: have a glass of cold water next to your workstation and when caramel approaches soft ball stage, take a spoonful and place it in cold water.
  7. After 3-4 seconds, take caramel in your fingers; it should form a firm, soft ball, but should not be hard. It should still be malleable to the touch.
  8. At this stage, caramel will turn transparent. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract and salt, if using.
  9. Pour into prepared and greased dish, then let cool and cut into squares or rectangles. Optional: wrap in parchment paper.
