I have a recipe for microwave caramels, so I used that technique with this recipe and it worked great. I made half the recipe so it would fit in a 2 quart microwave safe bowl. Mix the ingredients, pop into the microwave for 3 minutes, stir, cook 3 more minutes, stir, then cook for about 15 minutes until it reaches 245 degrees. At that point, I tested every minute until it was done. So much easier and faster than cooking it on the stove and it doesn't burn. My recipe says let it sit 10 minutes when it comes out of the microwave, stirring a couple of times, before pouring into the pan. Be sure to only do half recipe at a time so it doesn't boil over! But you can do a 2nd batch without washing your bowl and utensils.
