“BHG always sends me recipes and, honestly, vary rarely do I try them. This one caught my eye and I made them for my holiday goodie trays. So easy and a great way to use up excess caramels and the almond bark or chocolates you have. I dipped mine in colored sugar and they were a total beauty and so rich and delicious. Give them a try for any holiday - color the chocolate and use colored sprinkles. I put those fancy cocktail toothpicks in my caramels before dipping. This made them so much easier to dip and serve.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (14 ounce) bag caramels (48 count)
  • 1 lb chocolate-flavored candy coating or 1 lb vanilla candy coating
  • 2 cups chopped nuts (or anything you can think of that your can dip these in)


  1. Unwrap the caramels and place a toothpick in the center of each one.
  2. Heat candy coating in a heavy medium saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly just until melted. Remove from heat.
  3. Place nuts or brickle pieces in a bowl. Dip one caramel into coating; turn to coat.
  4. Place dipped caramels in nuts, turning to coat. (Or, dip a caramel halfway into coating. Place dipped caramel into nuts, turning to coat.)
  5. Transfer caramel to a waxed-paper-lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining caramels.
  6. Let stand 30 minutes or until firm. Store tightly covered up to 1 week.
