Thick caramel

tweetie | Sep 28, 2008 09:18 AM

As I was comparing recipes for caramel I noticed quite a range of amounts of sugar, anywhere from 1-2 1/2 cups, while the other quantities of ingredients were quite similar. I'm wondering what role the sugar plays besides sweetening. Does a larger amount produce a thicker caramel? Calling all chow chemists and scientists for help!
