This is a highly coveted recipe from my Grandma. I remember her making these every Christmas. Sometimes dipped in chocolate, sometimes topped with a pecan half, but always made with love for her family and a talent for making the creamiest caramels I ever had. She would also use these to make her famous Pecan Turtles.
