Pecan Caramel Candies Recipe

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 are very 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"

"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."

"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!"

"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."
