Microwave Sea Salt Caramels
Recipe type: Candy/Dessert
  • ½ cup sweetened condensed milk
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup packed light-brown sugar
  • ½ cup light corn syrup
  • ½ cup salted butter
  • ¾ tsp vanilla extract
  • sea salt
  1. Pre- cut 4 by 2-inch rectangles out of wax paper to wrap finished candies in.
  2. Line an 8 by 8-inch baking pan with parchment paper. Leave an overhang so you can lift your caramel out in one piece.
  3. Melt butter in a large microwave safe bowl. Whisk in sweetened condensed milk, sugars and corn syrup.
  4. Place mixture in the microwave for 6-7 minutes. Check to see if caramel is ready by carefully removing a small spoon of caramel and placing in a cup of ice water. When you remove the caramel you should be able to form a soft pliable ball. If it needs more time place back in the microwave for 10 second increments.
  5. When desired consistency is reached stir in vanilla extract and pour in to your baking dish.
  6. Place in the refrigerator until set. About 45 minutes.
  7. Lift caramels out with the parchment paper ledge. Sprinkle with sea salt.
  8. Use a pizza cutter to slice your caramels. Slightly form and place in the wax paper wrappers.
  9. Enjoy or give as a gift!
