I love candy making, but I am pretty new to it and have some major failures sometimes! I love our homemade caramels, but with two kids running around it just wasn’t going to work! My husband and I tried these a few weeks ago and they are our new favorite treat. They taste just like our homemade caramels, but were SO EASY to make!
These would make a perfect treat to bring to neighbors for the holidays! 🙂
Homemade Microwave Caramels Recipe:
(Makes 12-15 caramels)
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
Combine all ingredients in a microwaveable safe bowl until smooth. Cook for 6 minutes in your microwave, removing and stirring every two minutes. When caramel is done cooking, pour into a 9×13″ pan sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Let cool completely. Cut into pieces and roll up in wax paper.
