Easy Sea Salt Caramels

The sweet tooth is still going strong everyone! ‘Tis the season! I absolutely love caramel. This recipe is so easy because it is done in the microwave! Yes, the microwave. So just in case you need a last minute neighbor gift, or a sweet treat for your kids teacher, these sea salt carmels will surely delight!

Easy Sea Salt Carmels

  • 6 Tablespoons of butter cut into 6 pieces
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • coarse sea salt

Place a sheet of aluminum foil in a 9×13 pan. Spray the foil with cooking spray, making sure to coat sides as well.

In microwave safe bowl (at least 2 quart), add butter, white and brown sugar, syrup, sweetened condensed milk, & vanilla. Stir together and place in microwave, uncovered. Cook in microwave on full power for 8 and a half minutes, stopping and stirring thoroughly twice during the cooking time (about every 2-3 minutes).  Remove from microwave and stir until well mixed. Pour hot caramel into a prepared 9×13 pan. Place in fridge until firm enough to remove & cut (about 60 minutes). Pull up on sides of aluminum foil and remove the whole slab of caramel at one time. Place caramel slab on cutting board covered with parchment or waxed paper and cut into pieces of desired size. Then sprinkle a dash of sea salt on each individual caramel. On my next batch I am going to drizzle dark chocolate over the caramels!  ( At this point I wrapped each individual carmel in parchment paper to give to friends and loved ones!)
