12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies- Microwave Sea Salt Caramels

Caramels are my ultimate all time indulgence. Thanks to Pinterest, I now have the easiest version EVER.
Caramels have a special place because the nickname my family calls me is Cara-melle.

 If something has caramel in it, you can guarantee I am going to get it. 
Add in a little sea salt and you have the best treat!

I was truly impressed by the flavor of these caramels and at how quickly they came together. I'm so happy I tried them and can't wait to make them again!

Wow! These look easy! I've been intimidated to try and make candies from scratch b/c our humid climate can wreak havoc on them sometimes. But I think these should work out just fine. Yum!

I love that they don't need a candy thermometer to make them. Definitely my kind of recipe.

Caramel on the stove scares me, this sounds so easy!

My late sister-in-law used to make these every Christmas. Loved them, but I know they can be difficult to make. I will have to give this one a try!

Wow. These are amazing. Totally adding them to the dessert table for the party today. Caramels are my favorite too.
