Fudge Factory Farm Microwave Caramel

Caramel has always been one of my favorite candies and I have been blessed to be able to try different caramels from all over the world. I am a sucker for a rich, buttery, creamy caramel that is a little thick but more smooth and creamy then chewy. Luckily I make tons of great caramel each year, but when we are closed and I need a little caramel fix I use this recipe to tide me over.This caramel is so easy you just won’t believe you made it!


  • Candy Thermometer
  • Large Microwave-safe Dish


  • 1 x 14oz. Can sweetened condensed milk
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup corn syrup
  • ½ stick butter salted butter


  • Put all ingredients in a microwave safe dish, big enough to boil up.
  • Microwave for 60 seconds – stir
  • Microwave for 90 seconds – stir
  • Continue microwaving at 90-second intervals until you see a rich caramel color appear. Once this happens check the temperature. 230˚ for a soft caramel 240˚ for a firmer caramel. Be very careful at this point, the caramel is extremely hot and will burn the skin. I like to do an ice water test by dropping some of the caramel mixture into the ice water and feeling the consistency.
  • Let the caramel cool. It is ready to eat


Will yield a little over one pound of caramel.
