I could not believe nobody had posted this recipe for caramels. It is SO easy and SO rich and turns out perfect for me every time. I hope that you have as much success as I do. I also use this for my caramel apples. My mom says that nobody's got anything on my caramel apples, even the people who make them at the fair. I am posting prep time as an hour total because I am posting the methods for candy and apples.
