  2. I love carmels, and have never made before. I don't' know why because I have everything in the house I need to make them. thanks so much for sharing this recipe, I will be making, and like the idea of adding the kosher salt on top, I so love salt! Congratulations on starting you new blog. I like you banner and background, very simple yet pretty. Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration at Sunday's Best. PS - I am featuring this post on my Facebook page and welcoming you to blogland.

    1. wow! thank you so much for both the compliment and the welcome!

      i, too, love salt and the combo of this salty sweet is just amazing. these are one of the easiest candies i've ever made. and if you wrap them up in waxed paper and put them in a canning jar with a cute little label, it makes a great gift.
