This is a great, different caramel recipe that I've had forever. I make these for my Christmas boxes, rolled in toasted coconut, and they are always a favorite.

These were wonderful, rave reviews from everyone who tried them. I cut them into cubes and rolled in a quality cocoa, them wrapped in squares of parchment.
