Best Caramels Ever!

I have always made 'standard' caramels for the neighbors at Christmas time. This year I tried this recipe and they went wild! I ended up having to make 2 extra batches for them. The nice thing...they are so easy to make!

Carmels to crave

These were so easy to make. It did take a while to cut and wrap them, but I just sat in front of the TV and it helped. My Husband called them addictive. My friends were so pleased to get a small bag filled with chocolate carmels as a gift.

Easy and delicious

WOW! This was easier than I thought it would be! I finally got a candy thermometer and when I saw it in my drawer a few months later, I said, time for those caramels now. The recipe went together seamlessly and tasted delicious. Everyone loved it, especially my best friend Carol. We are chocholics together!

very nice
