Personal Notes:
These caramels have become my signature for Christmas. People expect to receive caramels, if not they call for the recipe.
Bjarn thinks if I give them away, I should just "cut a slab off and let them wrap them".
Wrapping many pans of these has made him a none eater, "If I don't eat these I don't have to wrap them."
Needless to say, the wrapping is not fun.
