Quick Salted Caramels

1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup light Karo syrup
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Kosher sea-salt

Melt the butter in the microwave, then stir in the other ingredients. Mind that this stuff gets hella hot, so not pets or kids within the reach of any of this stuff, an the container must definitely be melt-proof.

Nuke the mixture for 2 minutes (my microwave has a default setting of what I'm guessing is about 750), stop and stir.

Nuke for another 2 minutes, stop and stir.. 

Nuke for a final 2 minutes, give the mixture a final stir and wait for the bubbles to subside.

Pour quickly into a greased pan (I used one of the pyrex ones we've got, 8 inches by 12 or something).. let cool on the counter for 4-5 minutes, and then stick in the fridge.
I cooled for 10 minutes in the fridge, sprinkled some seasalt on and cut into it with a pizza cutter.. 
It tastes awesome, but is hard to cut through, so making shapes is somewhat an ambition.. I only did the 3 hearts because it's V-day. Otherwise.. pull off the pan, wrap in wax paper.. and you're good!
