    KayBeeOakdale's Note:

    I've been making these at Christmas time for years. My family demands them and they are wonderful gifts, much appreciated by all my co-workers. They are firm, but melt in your mouth and don't stick to your teeth. They are somewhat time consuming but worth it. I buy the red and green wrappers or you can cut up and use regular wax paper.

      Right on the money. Time consuming, yes. They do taste awesome though. If you have some time and you want to please some caramel lovers in your life, definitely give it a try. These are just absolutely delicious. I used gold wrappers from a craft store, and the recipe actually made about 150 wrapped caramels. They will look great in my Christmas candy and cookie gifts.

      I recruited my husband to make these for gifts. I chose this recipe because they aren't supposed to stick to your teeth. They did not disappoint. These will be made from now on they taste wonderful as well as easy and makes a bunch. Perfect! Thanks for posting!
