6-Minute Caramels

Love this recipe! It's easy to begin with and then add Demarle products and you've got it made. No need to butter a pan - the caramels will come right out! FYI - the caramallow patties associated with the original recipe at Rookno17 are also great!

¼ cup unsalted butter
½ cup granulated sugar 
½ cup dark brown sugar
½ cup light corn syrup
½ cup sweetened condensed milk

Place DAH deep flexiflat on a perforated baking sheet or prepare a 9x9 or 10x10 pan by lining with parchment paper in each direction so that parchment overhangs all four sides and can be used to lift out the finished caramel.  Use nonstick spray or butter to grease the parchment.

Place butter in a DAH medium or large round mold or medium microwave-safe bowl.  *Use the microwave glass plate to act as a support when removing the caramel from the microwave to stir.

Microwave 30 seconds to soften the butter.  Remove from microwave and stir in the sugars, corn syrup and condensed milk. 

Microwave for 2 minutes.  Stir. 

Microwave for another 2 minutes.  Stir. 

Microwave for a final 2 minutes.  Stir and pour immediately into one end of the deep flexiflat (will only fill ½) or prepared pan.  If using 8x8 pan, gently tilt pan to move caramel into each corner, then tap pan firmly on a flat surface to help level the hot candy.  Set aside to cool for 1 hour.  Use overhanging parchment to lift the cooled candy out of the pan and continue to cool for an additional hour.
