Aunt Janet’s Caramels

Aunt Janet is another one of my aunts that is a fabulous cook. She started making these caramels more years ago than I care to count but at least since the 80’s if not sooner. The only problem with making them is you want to eat them all! These are the best caramels ever, creamy and they just melt in your mouth.

This also makes a good caramel to dip pretzels in. Roll the pretzels in whatever add ins you are using as soon as you dip them.

Below is what the caramels look like when you pour them into the pan. To cut them use a pizza cutter or scissors. Wrap in wax paper squares. Store them in an air tight container.
