cup sweetened condensed milk
cup brown sugar, packed
teaspoon vanilla bean paste
teaspoon sea salt flakes, optional
In a microwave-safe bowl, melt butter completely, about 20-30 seconds.
Add corn syrup, sweetened condensed milk, brown sugar and salt to butter and mix until combined. Microwave, uncovered, for 5-7 minutes.
Mix in vanilla bean paste. To test, place a bit of the caramel into a bowl of ice water. If a small, malleable bead forms, the caramel is ready. If a bead doesn’t form, microwave for 30 more seconds and test again.
Grease the bottom and sides of an 8x8-inch dish with butter. Pour in the caramel and sprinkle with sea salt flakes, if desired. Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes to set.
Cut into rectangular pieces and wrap in parchment or wax paper.
- Add two tablespoons of bourbon to the melted caramel mixture for a rich and flavorful twist!
