I am a yoga instructor (teaching my first class in Boulder tonight!), and I rock climb. I was on the swim team in high school for one year (until the coach made me swim with pink eye and bronchitis).
So even though I'm not exactly fond of my big shoulders and hulk-like traps, I would say that my shoulders and and arms are pretty strong.
No, it's not really that bad - but you will get your arm workout in. For that reason, I recommend you switch stirring hands every few minutes!
3 c. sugar
1 - 16 oz. bottle + 2 Tbsp. light Karo syrup
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 pints heavy cream
1 c. evaporated milk
1 tsp. vanilla
6 Tbsp. butter
squares of wax paper (to wrap the caramels in)
1. Cook sugar, Karo and salt in a big heavy pan - place candy thermometer on the side. Bring to 230˚
2. While boiling, add cream and evaporated milk. Stir CONTINUOUSLY until the mixture reaches 240˚.
3. Remove from heat. Add butter and vanilla.
4. Pour into buttered 9x13" pan. Cool and cut into small pieces. Wrap in wax paper.
