    1. Mix brown sugar, sugar, cream and corn syrup in a saucepan. Stirring constantly, heat at medium heat until it reaches the boiling point, about 15 minutes. Cover and let boil 2 minutes, then turn off the heat and let sit 2 minutes.
    2. Stir in butter and vanilla, and nuts if using; let cool 30 minutes.
    3. Beat vigorously until mixture thickens and loses its sheen. Transfer to a buttered tin and cool until set (a few hours). Cut into small squares to serve.


    Instead of corn syrup, golden syrup can be used.
