Formatting Helps

Photos are a plus, upload them first.
The Title is the name of the recipe.
Bold any subsections (i.e. sauce, dry ingredients, etc.).
Use default font sizes, etc.
Each step should be a new paragraph; don't use the bullets or numbers.
Avoid abbreviations, such as tsp. or oz. Just type the word out.

Microwave Caramels

1 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup light corn syrup
1 pound light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips, melted

Blend the first 4 ingredients in a large microwave-safe bowl.  Microwave on high for 12 minutes, stirring every 3 minutes.  Mix in vanilla.  Pour into buttered 9x13 pan.  Chill overnight.
Pour melted chocolate over caramels.  Cut into 1-inch squares.  You may substitute almond bark for chocolate chips, or increase the amount of chocolate and dip caramel squares into chocolate to coat all sides.  Makes 10 dozen.
