I have several Caramel recipe’s, but this is my favorite! This Caramel takes some cooking time, but is well worth it. They are creamy, chewy & delicious. The nuts are optional of course. It also makes wonderful Caramel Apples as well.
You can also save some of the hot caramel in a glass bowl, & serve with apple slices.
