Pecan Caramel Candies

Salty and sweet, these candies are the perfect little snack. Form a kitchen assembly line with your kids, and the making becomes just as fun as the eating. —Julie Wemhoff, Angola, Indiana

    These are SO easy to make and taste so good. I like to put either a pecan half, a walnut half, an almond or a peanut M

    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.

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