Thanks for the recipe, Verlee.  i always get a kick out recipes that say to use caramels, unwrapped--as if we'd use them still in the cellophane.

LOL LOL  Verlee -- this morning I was stirring up a batch of first-try cookies (Coconut Almond w/white chips) and my phone rang .... the pastor of my church asking if I would please come and paint.  (I always clean on Saturday morning but yesterday I went late to help the woman in charge of dinners and parties get ready for one Sunday night.  While I was there I went ahead and cleaned)
I put the cookie stuff away and headed off to church.
When I finally got home I started working on a batch of a new Nestles recipe ....BUTTERSCOTCH POPCORN CRUNCHIES  ... to take to my favorite family tomorrow.
Now I see this recipe I just can't wait to try !!  LOL LOL

ahhhhhhhhh finished for tonight.  It's HOT.
The Butterscotch Popcorn Crunchies are good and will be great treat for the kids tomorrow.  It was a lot of work and took a lot of time.  I think the next time I want some I'll buy Jack In The Box.
The coconut almond cookies are very good too
That recipe is a keeper

Judy, you always brighten my day with your sense of humor!!! This recipe is from an elderly aunt, and I didn't even think about the caramel wrappings while copying it into my files. Good catch!

Hi Verlee .... that popcorn recipe is right here.  It's a very new recipe that makes piles and piles and piles of candied popcorn.
Butterscotch Popcorn Crunchies


And tonight, much too late for me, I went over to Walmart to get that  German Chocolate cake mix.  That's my very next recipe.  I can't wait!!

Verlee, I have been making this recipe for years, and it is very popular with my friends and  relatives.  I have made it for bridge luncheons and other events.  I recommend it highly.  I hope others like it too.  Thanks for typing it out for everyone!!

Another addition to the recipe....It was originally on the Kraft Caramel bag, and it was about 20 years ago that it came out.  I usually put pecans in the recipe instead of the called for walnuts as I think it is more "turtle candy" like with the pecans.  Just some interesting side lights.

These sound positively decadent!   My Grandsons favorite, well one of his favorite things to make are Oatmeal Carmelita bars these are pretty much the same so these might be his next project.  I keep telling him he can't alwaysmake the same thing.  If we always made the same things he never would have "discovered" the Carmelita bars. He does not like nuts in most things so it may take a bit of discussion.  I usually put nuts on half of something if that is possible and with this we could do that.  We will let you all know how his project turns out.

There are so many other things to cook and bake.  I don't know how old he is but there are so many different breads that I am sure he would love trying that. 
I have made more yeast breads since I moved because my grandson loves to make pizza  and cinnamon rolls. when we try out a new recipe we make comments on the page as to how it was and what we would change the next time.
I am one that hates  to write in books but a cookbook is a constant work in progress and it makes it easier when you make notes.  I hope one day my Grandson and possibly my Granddaughter will want my cookbooks.
