You may want to make a double batch of this irresistible snack...it gets gobbled up fast! "We purchased something similar from a local Boy Scout," recalls James Claassen of Brewster, Kansas. "We liked it so much we created our own version by coating caramel corn with rich milk chocolate."
When I make holiday goodies, my sister always asks when I’m sending the cranberry caramels. They keep well, wrapped in plastic wrap, at room temperature, or in the freezer. —Jan Rinker, Craig, Colorado
My grandmother was the queen of care packages. The Christmas season didn't start until the mail carrier arrived with her anticipated box of goodies. These caramels are my father’s favorite. —Elisabeth Larsen, Pleasant Grove, Utah
"Make a pot of coffee or fix a drink, this takes a while! It's worth it though-this recipe is a family favorite and we always get requests for gifts of these chewy caramels."
Darrell Brown, Lincoln, Nebraska
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
