This is a recipe that me and my husband make every christmas and give these away as gifts. Everybody now eagerly awaits their caramels.

Just made two batches for Christmas gifts. I sprinkled sea salt on the caramels after pouring and before cutting. So good! I also wrapped in parchment paper because it seems to stay wrapped better. A new holiday tradition!
