    startnover's Note:

    This is my mothers recipe. The only one I'll use. If you don't cook it to 230, more like 220 you will have a lovely caramel sauce instead of caramels. (My mom lives in a higher altitude and her caramels must reach 242 degrees to be firm enough.)

      These are very delicious. Rich and buttery. I used walnuts in place of the pecans and sprinkled them in the bottom of the pan (I thought they would stay there, but they all floated to the top). Also, I thought this was WAY too much caramel for a 9x9-inch pan, unless you like really thick pieces. I actually ended up using a 9x13-inch pan. Nevertheless, I LOVE caramels, any kind of caramels, and this one goes on my favorites list :)
