this recipe is one that I have used for many years and is always well received. I have found that it helps to make it in a foil lined pan that you then pull the whole thing out of the pan when cooled, remove the foil and then cut the bars on a cutting board. Also note that caramels don't come in 14 oz. bags anymore, usually 11 or 12 oz. bags.
