Caramels.... Salted or not!

Do you like your caramels salted or not?
I have gotten into eating Salted Caramel....
I love the taste of sweet and salty together.....
And put it together with chocolate and it is wonderful. 

I found this recipe for Microwave Caramel from
this is simple and tastes great 
It is great for when I make my turtles...

aren't these just the cutest.... They look like real turtles.
I promise that I will show you how to make these cute turtles in a separate posts
Today's post is about the caramel

Microwave Salted Caramel
adapted from
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup light Karo Syrup - I use Roger's Syrup that I buy in Canada
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp salt 

Combine all ingredients in a microwave safe bowl.  Cook on high for 6 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes.  Stir and pour in lightly greased pan.  Cool.  Once cool and slightly hardened score into small pieces.  I put mine back in the fridge until set and then brought it out and cut the candies. 

I put tinfoil and lightly greased it... this way I could pull the caramel out of the dish and cut them

My first batch I did not put the salt in with all the ingredients and once I poured them into the pan, I sprinkled Kosher salt on the caramels.

Once caramels are set, you can dip them in melted chocolate... YUM! or eat them as is...
