Amazing that a chocoholic like me, had to be reminded by hubby, that there is such a thing as Chocolate Caramels.... Thank Goodness for Nestle's recipes and ingredients.... You have to know, that I had to double the recipe and it turned out perfect. I googled a recipe and found this wonderful one, on Nestle's Chocobake site. It is creamy & very easy.
Hubby, family and our friends love it and that makes me smile......
