    SweetsLady's Note:

    This is absolutely delish! Regular caramels don't stand a chance! I got this from Southern Living. My changes are in parentheses. Time does not include candy standing or chilling. I've been told these taste like Riesen chocolate covered caramels. :)

      I made a half recipe since I was making a ton of other goodies; should have made the whole batch!! Made as directed and the were so good! I really like the caramel on their own as well (I prefer caramel over chocolate). Made for PRMR.
