"This has a great flavor combo! It is a pain unwrapping all those caramels but it's worth it for the end procuct. It's a nice pie to serve to company since it can be made ahead of time."

"Of course I will say it again, mine never looks like the photo. My fudge wouldn't drizzle but that was okay. I think where I went wrong on this was buying the low fat cream cheese so it lacked that really rich taste as well as wasn't as firm as I expected. I also got the off brand of caramels and think that the off brand lead to mine not having that wonderful caramel taste either. I guess if you are going to eat the calories go for it with the full cream cheese not the low fat. I also would look for a second recipe as you only use 1/4 cup of the evaporate milk."
