"Taking it to a Christmas party for 100+ women. I used the jumbo campfire marshmallows. This recipe was plenty for a double recipe. Also, I heated the liquid in an iron wok, so it made it very easy for dipping!"

"Very addicting. The hardest part is unwrapping the caramels. The original recipe does not have you freeze the marshmallows and I haven't had any problems this way. I will try cutting the marshmallow in half next time. Great recipe!"
