Forget the candy thermometer; all you need is a microwave to make these incredibly smooth and buttery caramels.

Ingredients

1/2
cup unsalted butter
1/2
cup corn syrup
1/2
cup sweetened condensed milk
1/2
cup brown sugar, packed
1/8
teaspoon salt
1
teaspoon vanilla bean paste
1
teaspoon sea salt flakes, optional

Directions

  • 1 In a microwave-safe bowl, melt butter completely, about 20-30 seconds.
  • 2 Add corn syrup, sweetened condensed milk, brown sugar and salt to butter and mix until combined. Microwave, uncovered, for 5-7 minutes.
  • 3 Mix in vanilla bean paste. To test, place a bit of the caramel into a bowl of ice water. If a small, malleable bead forms, the caramel is ready. If a bead doesn’t form, microwave for 30 more seconds and test again.
  • 4 Grease the bottom and sides of an 8x8-inch dish with butter. Pour in the caramel and sprinkle with sea salt flakes, if desired. Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes to set.
  • 5 Cut into rectangular pieces and wrap in parchment or wax paper.
Tips  

Add two tablespoons of bourbon to the melted caramel mixture for a rich and flavorful twist!
