"I hated unwrapping the caramels, so the second time I made them, I went to my bulk food store and found a block of caramel to use instead."

"Did anyone find out how to thicken the caramel??? I want to make this for gifts."

"These were delicious, but the caramel was way too runny and ran all over the pan. Next time I will leave the cream out and let the caramel cool down a bit before putting it on the chocolate."

"These were a big hit. My caramel was a little too runny, maybe it was too hot."
