This is exactly the receipe I was looking for. I already have a carmel receipe that I had used but thought I would cover them with chocolate and was looking to see if I should use parafin or not.. Your receipe answered my question and everything turned out great. Thank you for posting the receipe..

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.

I used Lactose-Free Condensed Milk Substitute due to allergies and had to use Crisco (I know, I know) instead of butter. My candy thermometer was acting up... going up and down between 215F and 225F. I ended up using the water test: dropping a blob of caramel in cold water and watching the consistency. I doubt I'll be covering these with chocolate (I have too much chocolate-coated stuff in my goodies box), they taste great au-naturel!!!

Beverage Tag- WOWZER!!! Can I say I agree with the description! Regular carmels do not stand a chance. These are fabulous both for me, DH and DBIL. Now I have to make them some for their trip. Dang it.! LOL These are really good and simple to make. I thought I would have a huge mess on my hands (to lick off) :-) but no, came together easy and pleasy. YUMMY and in holiday cookbook for future gifts. Thank you!

FANTASTIC! Was going to use that word that was coined in 'Sound of Music' but couldn't spell it, & didn't find it in the dictionary, so. . .! But you get the drift ~ these carmels are great! Didn't ball them this time around, but definitely will when I make them for the holidays at the end of the year! Thanks for posting the recipe!

Made for March, 2008 Aussie/NZ Swap. I followed the recipe exactly using the dark corn syrup and the shortening. Wonderful candy that was very easy to make and worth the time and effort. The caramel is a little on the soft side which gives the candy a nice gooey flavor. The caramel was good plain, so I knew they were going to be delicious dipped in chocolate. Thanks for another great recipe, SweetsLady.

These are wonderful and so easy to make! It is a long process but not difficult. The candies taste delicious and I will make these again. I did shape mine into balls. Thanks for sharing!

These were fantastic! I can't believe how good they are, which will not be nice for my waistline :)
