Reviews for Pecan Caramel Candies
"Have made these many times . Everyone really enjoys them."
"These are very sinful...bet you can't eat just one! Made them at Christmas and 5 year old nephew cried when I was taking them home. Needless to say they stayed with him to his mothers dismay! He got them again as a surprise on his birthday in March! Looks like this will be his gift every year! EVERYONE loves the combination of chocolate, salty, nutty and pretzel. Great recipe"
"This was fast and easy recipe"
"quick, easy, fantastic little gems!"
"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."
"This candy is not only very tasty, but extremely easy to make. I made over 100 in less than 30 minutes. Great for a quick snack."
"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!"
"These candies are very easy to make and taste great!"

"Easy, delicious, can't ever seem to make enough of them."
"This is on my Christmas Candy list every year now for the past 5 years. They go fast because they are kind of addicting with sweet, crunchy and salty all in one. And they are so very easy to make!"
"These taste great and look so fancy! The kids are thrilled to open the wrappers for you. :)"
"YUM! Way to easy. So addicting!"
"The "hardest" part was not getting frustrated while opening all those little candies."
"I am yet to make these... but a friend made them for us for Christmas last year. They are unbelievably good! I could not stop eating them! Will definitely have to make them this year!"
"A friend shared this recipe with me two years ago. Since then my family has looked forward to them around Christmas time. This past Christmas my grandchildren helped make them and we had so much fun. I think they enjoyed making them as much as eating them. When I make a batch they disappear so fast my husband says I need to hide some until the kids go home. LOL Even grown up "kids" love these treats."
"These are awesome! They're easy to make but look fancy & everyone loves them!"
"This is so good. My friend who doesn't like pretzels, caramel or pecans--loves this. Go figure. We who like all those ingredients love this. Easy and fun to make. My grandkids and I are making this after school."
"My husband expects these for every holiday. Super easy to make, and unwrapping the Rolos keeps the kids entertained for a while. This is one of the best recipes ever from Reiman."
"I make these candies nearly every year as gifts for friends and family. They are super easy to make and everyone loves them! It's a great gift for teachers, mail carriers or anyone you want to give something special to!"
"My nine year old son made these for his teacher as part of her Christmas gift b/c there were so easy. He even liked them and he doesn't care for pecans."
"These are easy enough for my 10-year-old granddaughter to make. A quick, easy treat for home or to take to a party or to a friend."
"This is my "go to" recipe for a quick treat or gift. I'm not that crazy about caramel and I still really enjoy them. One of my all time favorite Reiman recipes."
"These are SO good. I've made them a lot and whenever I give some to people, they want the recipe. They are REALLY easy to make as well. I'd recommend this recipe to everyone."
"So easy my 3 & 6 year olds helped. Delicious."
"YUMMY!! I'm going to make these for my Christmas gift bags!!"
"I've made these many times, and they are very good. But I can't seem to find the Rolo candies anymore."
