This is a family favorite at our house. We've made these caramels for the Holidays the past four years, and they are a consistent crowd pleaser! The recipe is well written and easy to follow.
A few tips/suggestions: I increased the Vanilla to a Tablespoon, and it was delicious! While the caramel cooks, place the buttered pan in the refrigerator. Wear medical exam gloves when cutting and wrapping the candy. We used waxed paper to wrap the candies; it was easy to cut into 4 x 5 inch squares for individual wrapping. My kids like to put the candies into decorative holiday boxes to share with their friends.
