      Oh Merlot these really are heavenly! They were on my 'to make ' list for one long time - what ever took me so long to buy those caramels! These were a hit on my serving tray - those that got past the 'taste test' that is! Thank you Merlot for another of your recipes we all loved.

      This was very good and very rick. The carmel mixture was a bit runny, and when not cold tended to drip. Next time I would go easier on the cream. I also think I would add more pecans.
