Pecan Caramel Candies Recipe

Publisher Photo
These candies are fast and easy, but they look and taste like you did a lot of work. Make as many-or as few -as you want. They're great alongside other desserts for guests who want only a bite of something sweet. -Julie Wemhoff Angola, Indiana

"These have all the elements needed for a go-to recipe--they're quick, easy, and delicious! These get raves whenever I take them to gatherings, and it's fun listening to others trying to decide what all the ingredients are! Either mini pretzel twists or the little square grids work equally well."

"They are so easy to make. I used Christmas (red & green) peanut M&Ms and they were a big hit."

"I started out making 1 batch of these for Xmas 2 years ago..then I had to make a second batch because they didn't make it to Xmas eve! These make a great little gift for any occasion or party. I place them in a nice container along with the recipe-because I know they disappear fast & everyone asks for the recipe. I have turned so many people onto these little gems. They are easy, fast to make and are perfectly crunchy, sweet, salty & gooey. To change them up I've used walnuts & festive colored M&M's..but they are perfect the way they are...thanks Taste of Home & Julie for another winner!"
