Homemade 6-Minute Caramels


CSC_2707
Who doesn’t want caramel in 6 minutes? Who doesn’t want SUPER delicious, SUPER soft, perfect caramel in 6 minutes? This is my new favorite thing to make. It’s just too easy! Would you believe that it’s made in the microwave in 6 minutes? Nope, you wouldn’t. I was super shocked at how perfect they came out.  It makes such a great gift too. And look in the next couple of weeks where I turn this delicious caramel into homemade Twix bars…YEEESSSS!

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 

Combine all ingredients.

Cook 6 minutes, stirring every two minutes. 

Stir and pour into lightly greased dish – I like a 9x13 because it gives a thin layer. Let cool completely. 

Cut, wrap in wax paper & store in air tight container. I like to cut big squares and then roll them up slightly into a log, then wrap them in wax paper. If you want it thicker, just pour into a smaller dish to cool and then cut. Enjoy!!

  1. I tried this but they for some reason are gooey. They never hardened and were a pain to get out of the greased pan.
