Reviews for Caramel Nut Marshmallows
"very good and easy to make i will make this again"
"I found the heated caramels were too hot to use my fingers, so I used a toothpick. Some of the caramel combo slid down on the marshmallow, but the residents of a senior living center, thought they were great, especially since the toothpick helped then handle the delightful treat."
