OK, so I know I have posted other Carmel recipes before but I really love this one. It is really easy and taste delicious! I got the recipe from my mom, but here is a link to where it is from Bake Space.

Microwave Caramels

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup Light Karo Syrup (not dark-doesn't set right)

1/2 cup light brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar


1 t. vanilla

1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Buttered 8x8 baking dish

Melt butter in large microwave bowl.

Stir in Karo syrup, both sugars and sweetened condensed milk.

Mix until dissolved.

Microwave on high 3-1/2 minutes.

Stir down and scrape sides of bowl.

Microwave on high 3-1/2 minutes. (this will be soft-ball stage).

Stir in vanilla and nuts (if you add them at all).

Pour into buttered dish and refrigerate until set.

Cut into square and wrap each in wax paper. Enjoy!

2x4 Heart

This a cute easy Valentine decoration too! I found it hear at Under my polka dot umbrella.

conversation blocks

I've decided since I don't have as much time anymore (because I am working and trying to take care of my kids) that I am going to post things I want to make, and when I get around to making my own I will post pictures!

I saw these cute little blocks and I think they would make a great Valentines decoration!

I saw them here at Brown Paper Packages.
