    Mmm, my mom and I always make these for Christmas! They're definitely a family favorite, and you're right, it's so hard to resist but they really are better at room temperature. Gorgeous photos!!

    One of my long time friends makes these… I finally made them myself and everyone went crazy over them! Her recipe calls for caramel ice cream topping instead of the individual caramels. I have a local ice cream parlour that bottles their own caramel, so it's really sinful. They turn out DELICIOUS and you don't have to deal with those difficult wrappers

    Do you know the origin of carmelitas? I just started seeing them in the past year and I'm so curious. Your version looks scrumptious!

    Oh, those look good! I have a package of caramels in my panty. I got them for an apple cider caramel cookie recipe, then lost the recipe.

    Looks like I'll be making these! πŸ™‚
