I thought I'd start sharing some of the recipes I love to make, starting with this easy recipe for homemade caramels!
1/4 C BUTTER (not margarine)
1/2C white sugar
1/2C Brown Sugar
1/2C Light Karo Syrup
1/2C Sweetened Condensed Milk
Combine all into either a glass bowl (if you're making this in a microwave)
OR a small pan (if you're this on the stove top)
Cook for 6 minutes, (microwave- stir every two minutes) (stovetop stir constantly)
Pour into lightly greased square pan, and cool completely. (I put mine outside on a cold day,
then finished cooling it in the fridge)
Cut into squares and wrap in WAXED PAPER.
These caramels are much softer than the store bought, so I keep mine stored in the fridge.
Next time I make them I'll coat in chocolate and sprinkle coarse sea salt on top!
