{Pin}spired copycat Week 10: Sea Salted Caramels With FREE MATCHING PRINTABLE!

Oh man. Have you tried sea salted caramels yet? If need to. They are salty AND sweet, so if you've got a monster about to drive you nuts craving for something but can't figure out if you want salty or sweet, try these. And you won't believe how easy they are to make!

Yes, that's right they are easy to make. Easy, as in, you put the first 6 ingredients into a microwave safe bowl...

  • 1/4 cup butter, cut in 8 pieces
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla 
  • Coarse sea salt (hold yer' horses, don't put this in the bowl!) 
Put the bowl into the microwave and cook for 5-6 minutes (for soft & chewy texture) or 6-7 minutes (for firmer yet still chewy texture), stopping to stir it every 2 minutes.  When it's done cooking, give it another good stir and pour it into either a greased baking pan, or a baking pan lined with wax paper or something the caramel won't stick to. Smooth it out, give it a light sprinkling of sea salt, wait for it to cool, cut it up, and you're done!

And, if you're like me, you want to hoard them all, but end up wrapping them in waxed or parchment paper, putting them in cute packages and giving them to your friends and family. So, in case you feel like sharing them, here is a free printable label to go with today's {Pin}spiration!

You can open/edit it in any sort of picture editing thing, or even Microsoft Word or whatever to change it to the size you want! :)

Enjoy! And...if you make some, save some for me. Fer' reals.
