Caramels 2009 style

I love trying new things...crafts, decorating ideas, recipes, but sometimes it's all about traditions. My grandma always made these caramels. For the last 12 Halloween's I have. The only thing about them that changes is in the way we give them out. This year I made drawstring treat bags to stuff them in.

I put my-most-prized-recipe here on my blog last fall. It makes a 9x13 pan full of caramels.

This cute little enamelware pot is filled with caramels for the ladies who work in the office at my kids school...I can't forget them.

I remember this from last year. One day I am going to take the time to make these..

Sick house I have..Lexi went to the doctor today and has the flu so she will be out till Monday. I hate it cause this would have been her first school party for halloween. Oh well she will have many other years.

Oh yum! They look delicious! :)How sweet of you to make them for the women in the school office! I bet they will love them! I would love to try this recipe, if not now, at least at Christmas! :)

Jeni these caramels really are the best that I have ever had. I love making them too. This is the first year since I met you that I have not made them for Halloween. We are having a party at our house this year and maybe I can squeeze in time to make a batch tomorrow. We would love to see you when we come through on the 8th if you have time.
