TO DIE FOR! I used home made caramels, recipe 50667, added all chew ingredients to small amount of caramel mass before it had set.

Made these tonight to go on my cookie trays this year. I ended up using 24 Kraft caramels and adding 1/2 tbsp vanilla to them. Instead of melting the caramels with water, I used 1 tbsp milk. I had to use vanilla bark coating instead of the white chocolate because that's what I had on hand. They were easy to throw together and they taste really good with the vanilla coating spooned over the top. I think my family and friends are going to be very impressed. Thank you for posting!
