I've made these delicious treats 3 times and am making them again for Christmas! One tip, though, is to use a pastry brush to paint on the chocolate...dipping the caramel coated rods into chocolate melts the caramel...I'm making some with white chocolate and chopped peppermint bark for the holidays. They taste fabulous and are such a great party hit!
These are FANTASTIC and really easy to make. My whole family just loved them the first time I made them, so whenever we have a family party - I bring these along.
