One of my very favorite things about the holiday season is definitely the homemade chocolate caramels.
I absolutely love our microwave caramels (and we make them pretty often at our house!), but I was really in the mood for some chocolate, too.
I remembered some of my favorite chocolate’s from Mrs. Call’s and decided to give it a go making a homemade version myself.
THEY TURNED OUT AMAZING. I had to send them to work with my husband, or else I would have eaten them all in one sitting.
I decided to use our microwave caramels as a base for two reasons:
- You don’t need a candy thermometer (which means you have no excuse NOT to make them)
- You only need a few ingredients (most of which you probably already have in your pantry)
Ingredients for Homemade Chocolate Caramels:
- Granulated sugar
- Light brown sugar
- Light corn syrup
- Sweetened condensed milk
- Milk chocolate chips (you could also use semi-sweet or dark chocolate)
- Vegetable oil
- Coarse sea salt (if you’re not a fan of salted caramels, you could easily leave this off)
