This four-ingredient caramel dip is so simple and yummy. People always want to know how long I slaved over the stove to prepare it and are amazed to find that I made it in the microwave. When large marshmallows aren’t on hand, I substitute 2 cups of mini marshmallows instead. –Becky Heiner, West Valley City, Utah

"Beware - caramels come in 11 oz. bags now. Most recipes still say 14 oz. because that was the standard for so long. It seems the good old days are gone."
