Old-Fashioned Caramel Candies

I was searching on Pinterest for some good Christmas recipes and ran across this very easy one for Caramel Candies. Caramels are one of my favorite candies and I have tried different recipes to make them before but it never turned out well.

What you will need:
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of brown sugar
1 cup of Karo Syrup
2 sticks of butter (use real butter)
1 can of condensed milk
Big Microwavable bowl (at least 10 cup size)

Step 1: Put the butter in bowl and melt in microwave.

Step 2: Mix all ingredients into melted butter EXCEPT the condensed milk. Mix Well.

Step 3: Pour Condensed Milk into bowl and mix well.

Step 4: Microwave on High for 13 minutes. (put a plate under the bowl in case it boils over). While caramel is in microwave butter a 9X13 pan.

Step 5: Carefully remove from microwave and stir then pour into 9X13 pan. Allow it to cool.

Once cool cut in pieces and wrap with cut out squares of wax paper.

These would make great Christmas gifts just put a few in a Christmas box or gift bag.
