Homemade Microwave Caramels

I love caramel…… hot, cold, wrapped, dipped in chocolate, I don’t care….I love it!!  I love it even more when I can make it in less than six minutes in the microwave!!!  Note: This should only be used in microwaves with 950-1000 watts.


5 Tbl. butter
1/2 c. light corn syrup
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. packed light brown sugar
4 oz. sweetened condensed milk (about 1/4 c. + 2 Tbl.)
Put all ingredients in a large, microwave safe, bowl.  Microwave for 6 minutes, stirring
every 2 minutes.  Spray an 8”x8” dish with cooking spray and pour mixture in.
Let cool and cut.  Wrap in wax paper.
Seriously, it IS that easy!!  Do not over cook, as it will make a harder caramel.
