Holiday Recipes - Sea Salt Caramels
3/4 cup of butter (12 tbsp)
1/2 cup sugar
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
3 tbsp light corn syrup

Combine butter and sugar in saucepan in medium heat, stirring until the butter has melted and the sugar has dissolved.
Add in sweetened condensed milk and corn syrup. Cook on medium high, stirring constantly, until mixture boils.
