These caramels were fast and easy to make. I have a suggestion to make individual caramels that are super easy to handle. I used a silicone mini-muffin pan and filled each one about 1/2 to 3/4 full. After sitting in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes they popped right out and I dipped each one in melted dark chocolate. It makes a perfect 2 bite candy. They look like professional chocolates you buy in a store. I will upload a picture as soon as I can.
I will add another 5 star review!! This is so quick to make and the flavor is delicious. I made this to use in making peanut clusters/turtles. I put peanuts in the bottom of a candy paper cup, then topped with the hot carmel and then put in the frige for about 10 minutes. Then I added melted milk chocolate on top of the caramel and peanuts, yummy!!! Thanks for sharing the great recipe. Made for PRMR Tag Game.
Adding a liberal sprinkling of Kosher or sea salt across the top immediately after pouring the molten caramel into the pan makes this recipe even better. People literally beg me for the recipe.
