    Best Caramels Ever!

    Barbara Taylor from CENTENNIAL, CO

    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

    RITA MANN from Riverside, IL

    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.

    Rebecca Barclay from TUCSON, AZ

    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!

    KAREN GENTILI from EAST BROOKFIELD, MA

    My husband was very happy with this recipe. He absolutely LOVES caramel! I shall be making these more often. Might just become a Father's Day tradition (this being his first Father's Day!). Once my son is old enough, he can help me make them for his Daddy. I know for a fact he will help him eat them (once he has teeth, that is!).

    SUPERIOR TASTING!

    Leticia Loya from Moreno Valley, CA

    made this super easy candy for my Grandaughter's birthday, and I got incredible reviews. It is comparable to the best "shop candy" out there. I also made one batch with rum flavoring and it was also a huge favorite with the adults. Thank You so much for giving your fans such great recipes!

  •  Star(s)

    Scrumptious!

    LeeAnn Maresh from North Platte, NE

    I love to make candy and these are wonderful! Not difficult, and as long as you keep an eye on the mixture as it boils, they will turn out perfect. I plan to send some in my college son's Easter care package. (I'll wrap them in waxed paper for this).

    chocolate caramels

    Linda Regan from TRUSSVILLE, AL

    They tasted great, but didn't cut like the picture showed. I think maybe next time I will refrigerate them first and then cut. They really did taste like caramels from a fancy candy shop.

    Love the caramels

    Radeana Wilson from BEL AIRE, KS

    The first time I made these, I was too impatient and didn't let the thermometer reach 245. They were still good, just gooey. This year I was patient and the caramels were wonderful!

    I LOVE THESE

    New favorite

    VONELL TERRY from TERRETON, ID

    I have tried a lot of caramel recipes but this one is definitely a winner. Before they set up to much I dipped large pretzel rods in the caramel and then let set up. After that I dipped them in chocolate for a treat called Bam Bam sticks. Great recipe. I left out the chocolate.

  •  Star(s)

    Too Oily

    Jennifer Bailey from Austin, IN

    We probably did something wrong with all the wonderful reviews the recipe has recived, but we followed the directions completely and they were too oily to eat and didn't harden correctly.

    Chocolate Caramels

    Pat Sievert from STILLWATER, MN

    This was so easy. I left out the chocolate, they were just as good. I plan to make them again for Christmas and give as gifts.

    The best caramels ever

    Tamara Cervantes from Idaho Falls, ID

    This recipe was very easy to make and I had everything needed to make it already(except I substituted Nestle's chocolate chips for the chocolate requested in the recipe, without a trip to the store. The taste was excellent and I will definitely be making them again.

  •  Star(s)

    Great Gift

    Debbie Smith from STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, CO

    These made a great homemade gift for an elderly friend who used to cook, bake, etc. for years. She really appreciated the fact that I took the time to make caramels instead of running out to the local candy store to buy them. Well worth the effort.

  •  Star(s)

    What nice results

    Kaylene Robbins from BELLEVUE, WA

    I made these as plain caramels, omitting the chocolate. Wow, did they turn out great. My family was very impressed. Trouble is, I can't seem to stay out of them now. Thanks for a great recipe.
