2 (12 ounce) bags
individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped
I just made these and they turned out great! I used parchment paper and put them in the freezer before I dipped them in chocolate. I always use parafin wax when I melt chocolate for dipping.
I made these for a family Christmas party and they were a big hit. I followed the recipe exactly, easy to make and delicious. I used semisweet chocolate chips and substituted parchment paper (buttered)for the aluminum foil.
I made this exactly as directed.The pecans should be on the bottom in little clusters or arranged, then the melted caramel added. Also, the chocolate doesn't need to be melted until the caramel is set.
Very, very addicting! I decided to use heavy cream in place of the water because I assumed it would make the caramel a touch more rich and creamy. Hold off on melting the chocolate-I did it while the caramel was hardening, which I used parchment for not foil. I used two pecan halves per candy and instead of drizzling the chocolate, I rolled the hardened pecan-caramel mix in the chocolate so it would be well-coated all around. I used semi-sweet chips but I think I would prefer milk chocolate. Will absolutely be making these again!
I make this once and everyone said they were as good as store once
Now I found out a Grandson through Marriage just love then,so for his birthday I'm makeing him so
