These are delicious! Like a wonderful cross between turtles and 100 Grand (two of my favs!) The only change I made to the recipe itself was to use 2 cups milk chocolate chips and 1 cup semi-sweet, because that's what I had.
As far as following directions - I've burned stuff on my electric stove before, so I melted everything in a makeshift double-boiler. (Honestly, where would I be in life without my Pyrex bowls?!) Caramels took a little longer to melt this way I think, but it was WORTH IT. (Besides, I had already spent 2 hours shelling my own pecans - I was already invested! At that point, what's an extra few minutes?)
Word of advice - be generous when greasing the waxed paper, if that's what you're using! One sheet turned out fine, one sheet stuck to the caramels (it's just a little extra fiber, right?) Next time I might try the silicon baking sheets I always forget I have...
Did NOT get 32 tasty treats - I used my mixing spoon instead of a teaspoon to drop the caramels and they ended up HUGE! But they're so yummy that no one cared! Next time I will try to make them smaller, though - they looked a little overwhelming this time. Took them to the Academy Awards party and my friends raved about them! Thanks for a keeper!
