I was given this recipe from a coworker who told me they were the best caramels ever and were so easy to make. She was right! They have now become a holiday staple when baking because of their delicious butter flavor and melt-in-your-mouth texture!

Tip: I have had the best results when using name brand ingredients as listed.
