Caramel Nut Logs
Get started!



1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

1 (7-ounce) jar marshmallow crème

4 1/2 to 5 cups powdered sugar


2 cups chopped salted peanuts, cashews or pecans

1 (11-ounce) package caramels, unwrapped

2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter

2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Half & Half

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine 1/2 cup butter and marshmallow crème in microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, stirring once, 1 1/2-2 1/2 minutes or until melted. Stir until blended. Stir in 4 1/2 cups powdered sugar; mix well. Place onto surface lightly sprinkled with powdered sugar; knead in up to 1/2 cup additional powdered sugar with hands until mixture is firm and no longer shiny.

  2. STEP 2

    Divide mixture into 6 equal parts. Shape each into 5x1-inch log; wrap in plastic food wrap. Place logs onto ungreased baking sheet. Freeze at least 2 hours or overnight until firm.

  3. STEP 3

    Line another baking sheet with waxed paper. Set aside. Place chopped nuts on another sheet of waxed paper. Set aside.

  4. STEP 4

    Place caramels, 2 tablespoons butter and half & half in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until caramels are melted and smooth. Reduce heat to low to keep caramel mixture warm.

  5. STEP 5

    Remove logs from freezer; unwrap. Dip 1 log into warm caramel mixture with tongs or two-pronged meat fork. Turn to coat; allow excess caramel mixture to drip back into pan.

  6. STEP 6

    Place caramel-coated log onto nut-covered waxed paper. Lifting waxed paper, roll log to coat with nuts. (Use hands to press nuts into log, if necessary.) Set log onto waxed paper-lined baking sheet to cool. Repeat with remaining logs. Refrigerate 1 hour; wrap each log in plastic food wrap. Store refrigerated.

  7. STEP 7

    Cut each log into 12 slices; place each into foil candy cup.

Tip #1

Place 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon shortening in bowl. Microwave 30 seconds. Stir; continue microwaving, stirring every 10 seconds, until melted and smooth. Drizzle over logs.
