  1. Combine the caramels, the half-and-half, and the butter in a 1-quart microwave-safe measuring cup or bowl. Microwave on high for 2 to 3 1/2 minutes to soften the candy (check the mixture after the first 2 minutes, and after that, at 30-second intervals). Remove the mixture from the microwave, then add the vanilla extract and stir until smooth. If you prefer preparing the sauce on the stovetop, heat the caramels, half-and-half, and butter together in the top of a double boiler set over simmering water until the candy melts. Stir until the mixture is smooth, then remove the pan from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract. Pour the mixture into a fondue pot and set the flame to keep it warm. Serves 6 to 8.
