I make a lot of candy during the holiday season but caramel is just one of those things I had never made. To me it was too intimidating to make sure that it wasn’t over done or under done (yep, I know, SILLY!!)

Well this recipe changed my world! Alright, not my world but definitely my entire perception of making caramel.


Quick and Easy Microwave Caramels

1 cup butter
1 cup White Sugar
1 cup Brown Sugar

In a large microwave safe bowl melt the butter for 1 minute.

Remove from the microwave and add the rest of the ingredients. Mix well.

Place back into the microwave and cook on high for 3 minutes. Take the bowl from the microwave and stir well.

Continue cooking on high for an additional 3 minutes, remove and stir.

Cook for 3 more minutes ( for a total of 9 mins.)

Remove from the microwave, stir and pour into a lightly buttered 9 x 13 pan.

Once caramel has set, wrap in wax paper and store in an air tight container.
