Texas Millionaire Caramels

"I don't know where I got this recipe nor do I know the history of its name. I have been making this since the 70's. You can cook the caramels to soft or firm stage depending on your preference. I like to make them very soft. I chill in frig and cut up into squares. Then I freeze them and dip them in batches. The full recipe makes alot of candy, so I sometimes make only half. Sometimes I add chopped nuts to half the recipe. I like dark chocolate."
