Personal Notes:
If caramels turn out a little soft, eat with spoon. LOL! This recipe is used once a year at our house. It is made at Christmas time at the request of Uncle Lyle (moms brother). Sometimes the weather doesn't allow him to get there so the rest of us have to eat it or put it in a tub and mail it to him.
