Six Minute Sea Salt Microwave Caramels

These are these best caramels ever!  I usually only make candy around Christmas, but these are super yummy and very impressive.  Enjoy!


1/4 cup butter

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup light Karo syrup

1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk

1Tbsp course sea salt


1.   Combine all ingredients.

2.   Microwave 6 minutes , stirring every  two minutes. If mixture looks grainy, microwave in 2 minute intervals, stirring thoroughly until mixture is creamy and has no lumps.

3,   Stir and pour into foil line lightly greased 8 x 8 dish or cookie sheet

4.    Let cool for 15 minutes

5.    Sprinkle sea salt over mixture and refrigerate for at least one hour.

6.    Cut, wrap in parchment paper & store in an air tight container. ( or just cut, they probably won’t last long enough to wrap)

Added a sprinkle of sea salt across the top after pouring and the taste was amazing. So easy to make. Just be more patient than I was and let the caramel cool completely for easy cutting. Also, using the proportions in the recipe, you can pour into a half cookie sheet and still have room to spare, but when you slice it up and wrap into parchment paper or cut into squares, it makes nearly two dozen servings. Definite crowd pleaser!

I use a pizza cutter to cut the caramels.  It works great!
