Go Nuts! Coconut Caramels
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Cook: 5 min. + cooling
Makesabout 3/4 pound
This is wonderful! I made a batch on the stovetop because I don't own a microwave and it came out deliciously! I would give this to any caramel lover. I used cashews instead of peanuts because peanuts are the object of a lot of allergy cases in my house, whereas cashews are not. I also refridgerated mine before cutting and it was a little difficult, but not messy. Great recipe.
These were just yummy! To get the marbling, I melted the white chocolate with the coconut separate from the caramels...then, I swirled it with a knife into the warm caramel mixture once it was in the pan.
I made this during Thanksgiving holiday and LOVED it!!! It was so quick and easy. I'm now making it to give to family on Christmas Eve.
This recipe cost me about $10.00 for the ingredients and netted about 1 1/2 lb of the candy. It is good, it is easy, but I will save myself the $$ and buy a Payday candy bar instead!

First off, these smell awesome when they are cooking and the combination of the coconut, caramels, peanuts and white chocolate tastes fantastic! I tried making these two different ways, though, and didn't get that beautiful marbled look int he picture. The first time I followed it exactly but probably stirred too much. The second time I cooked the caramels by themselves and added the other ingredients after the caramels were melted. Still no beautiful white marbling effect. Did anyone's turn out as pretty as the picture?
I must have done something wrong because mine turned out extremely hard. I was expecting a soft, chewy treat - basically like caramel, but with maybe a little crunch from the nuts. However, it was nearly impossible to cut, much less eat. The flavor was good, but it was just too hard to cut/eat.
I made these during the holidays, gave them to friends and family...they were delicious, easy and a bit hit!!
super easy & very yummy! Thanks
Once you get the caramels unwrapped, this is a fairly simple recipe for such magnificent results! Will be making again.
