    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.

    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.

    Can,t imagine what the cream is to be added to--the chocolate or the caramels? Did you goof?

    Easy and tasty "Turtles". Just curious, what are you supposed to do with the Whipping Cream?
