Unknownchef86's Microwave Soft Vanilla Caramels

10 mins (prep 10)

64 servings
I don't know if people will thank me for posting this, or hunt me down because they've become addicted to them! These are so good, they should be illegal! These caramels are extremely fast to make and extremely good! I don't see why they couldn't be substituted in any recipe calling for store-bought wrapped caramels. They are a spinoff from the Creamy Caramel Microwave Popcorn recipe by VillageMom (Creamy Caramel Microwave Popcorn). I love the caramel corn, but I love the caramel even more! I made these for candy trays I'm giving out for Christmas 2005, and liked it so much I figured I'd better post it...so I don't ever lose it or forget what I did! That and I need to share the addiction (insert evil laugh). Make sure you use GOOD QUALITY (Reynold's) heavy duty aluminum foil, as I used a cheaper brand that definitely wasn't the "heavy duty" it was advertised to be...and wound up picking aluminum foil pieces off of the caramel. The number of servings is approximate. Cooking time does not include time for the caramel to cool (before cutting)
