Microwave Caramels

I tried another of my Pinterest pins this weekend and it was a big hit!
Microwave caramels…who would have thunk you could make something this scrumptious in the microwave???
I made two batches…the first was rock hard and could not be chewed or cut with any knife I had in my kitchen…I didn’t want to get the chain saw out, so I ended up tossing it into the trash!  I couldn’t even melt it!
I scooped the caramel out with a melon baller before it set up.  And these caramels also boiled over in the microwave and created a ginormous mess, but yet they turned out perfect!  And the taste is so smooth and wonderful!

Wow, I didn't know you could make caramels in the microwave, I will have to try this, I love those soft gooey caramels like this. Just a thought, next time for the ones that got too hard, could you have melted them back and made them into a hard caramel candy like Werther's?

Jill said...

Oh yum - I'm off to check out that pin now!

Thanks for linking to a Round Tuit!
Hope you have a fabulous week!

Oh Ellen! Was it really necessary that you share this with me? Caramel is about as irresistible as it gets. And now I know how to make it myself. lol

I agree - caramel is the best. I didn't know you could do it in the microwave. I would be thrilled if you shared this at our Link It Up Thursday party, going on until Monday.

Never would have thought you could make caramels in the microwave. Thanks so much for sharing at this week's BFF Open House!

I tried these and they are wonderful!! What a great idea to scoop them out with a melon baller. They are so soft that they are were kind of hard to get out of the pan. I will have to try that the next time I make them. Thanks so much for sharing with us at Link It Up Thursday.
