Chocolate Caramel Candy Recipe

Making candy is a year round treat for me and my family. I love to make homemade caramel every Christmas, and use some of that caramel to make turtles.

However, sometimes during the year, while I crave those turtles, I just don’t have an hour to make caramel. I want to be sitting outside reading a book instead!

These Caramel Nut Clusters are a perfect treat to nibble on while reading that book! They take minutes to make, but look impressive.

By making a quick treat it leaves me more time to play with my family. Another favorite, quick treat is my Microwave Peanut Brittle. Crunchy and delicious, and made in the microwave in ten minutes!

We love Aimee’s microwave candy creations! Don’t miss her Microwave Peanut Brittle Recipe.
