  • 1

    In a microwave-safe bowl, melt butter completely, about 20-30 seconds.

  • 2

    Add corn syrup, sweetened condensed milk, brown sugar and salt to butter and mix until combined. Microwave, uncovered, for 5-7 minutes.

  • 3

    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.

  • 4

    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.
