Super simple salted caramel candy recipe, using the microwave and ice cube trays

Recipe Ingredients for Salted caramels

1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon coarse sea salt

Recipe Directions for Salted caramels

  1. 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.

  2. Cook in microwave on full power for 6 minutes (for soft & chewy texture) or 7 minutes (for firmer yet still chewy texture), stopping and stirring thoroughly twice during the cooking time (every 2-3 minutes).

  3. Remove from microwave and stir until well mixed. Pour hot caramel into prepared pan or molds

  4. Coat 2 plastic mini ice cube trays with cooking spray. Allow hot caramel to cool for 10 minutes after removing it from microwave. Use spoon or small scoop to fill sections of tray. Place in fridge until firm (40-60 minutes). Invert trays and twist and tap until caramels fall out.

  5. If the caramels are oily from the cooking spray, blot them off with a paper towel.

  6. Sprinkle coarse sea salt directly on top of caramels if not adding chocolate drizzles.
