Easy Salted Caramels

I tried these caramels because they looked SO easy, I love caramels, and I had everything on hand. They were very easy and so good! They only use a handful of ingredients and you don't need a candy thermometer.

Easy Salted Caramels
adapted from Creme de la Crumb

1½ sticks butter (12 tablespoons)
½ cup sugar
3 tablespoons light corn syrup (or honey)
14 oz sweetened condensed milk
½ teaspoon vanilla
coarse sea salt

1.  In a medium sauce pan combine butter and sugar and stir over medium heat until melted. Stir in corn syrup and condensed milk.  Bring to a boil and then decrease to simmer. Cook and stir for 7-10 minutes or until mixture achieves deep golden color, stirring constantly.

2.  Pour caramel into a greased 8x8 inch pan (glass is best, I think) and allow to cool completely. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt if desired. When completely cooled, cut into squares and wrap in wax paper.
