I found a can of condensed milk in the fridge, looked up some recipes, and stumbled upon this one. I was always scared of making homemade caramels, but this was a complete success! I halved the recipe, and couldn't be more happy that I did...as I ended up with tons and tons of caramels. Next time, I will still use the 8x8 pan for half the recipe or a 9x13 for a whole batch, as i think they were too thick in a smaller pan. I used veg oil instead of butter to melt my semi-sweet chocolate, and I ended up using a whole 2 c bag on half of the batch. Be careful not to heat this too quickly, or it will be grainy. I also make the mistake of trying to cut these too early, and made a huge mess. I ended up shaping the warm pieces into circles, dipped them, and drizzled with some more chocolate which turned out pretty cute. My husband was speechless when he came home and tried one...and that says a lot!
