Caramel Pecan Clusters Recipe

Caramel Pecan Clusters Recipe

I make lots of candies and I often add a few ingredients or leave some out. My great-nephew, Josh, is my taste-tester, and this recipe is among his favorites. It seems that my snack jar is always going on empty, but this gives me great joy. —Marcille Groenke Minneapolis, Minnesota
