Microwave Caramels are so incredibly easy to make and they turn out perfect! Soft chewy and perfect caramel texture made right in your microwave!
Heyyyyy it’s Tiffany from Creme de la Crumb! Can you believe Christmas is one week away?? Crazy. Just crazy. I’m knee deep in wrapping paper and holiday treats and my house smells like pine and gingerbread. I’m one happy gal!
I’ll tell you what though, during Christmas time life is so busy and hectic that I LOVE finding really easy recipes that don’t take a lot of time. These caramels are no-fuss and sooo yummy – plus they make the perfect neighbor gift (if you can bear to part with a few!) I love to sprinkle a little sea salt right on top of mine to get that salty-sweet thing going on – MMMM!
How do you make caramel in the microwave?
- Start by generously buttering a 9×13 inch pan and set aside. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the butter. Once the butter has been melted, add the brown sugar, karo syrup, and sweetened condensed milk. Microwave on full power 4- 5 minutes.
- Remove from the microwave and stir. Continue microwaving for 4-5 minutes. Stir again and add the vanilla.
- Pour the caramel into the 9×13 inch inch buttered pan. Let them completely cool for 1-2 hours. Cut the caramel with a knife and wrap in wax paper.
