I love caramel in every possible way - caramel macchiato, caramel ice cream, caramel cookies, caramel macarons or just a plain piece of caramel with a pinch of fleur de sel. So when I found this recipe for microwave caramel I just HAD to try it. Especially since it only has 5 ingredients and is supposed to take about 6 minutes.
So here we go, this is the original recipe:
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
1) Combine all ingredients.
2) Cook 6 minutes, stirring every two minutes.
3) Stir and pour into lightly greased dish.
4) Let cool.
5) Cut, wrap in wax paper & store in air tight container.
Doesn't sound too difficult. I started out by putting everything in a glass bowl. Instead of the Karo syrup I used caramel syrup, duh It's much easier to come by here.
