This is quick, few ingredients, one cooking dish and very tasty. I have never had a batch not be a success. I used to cook a caramel on the stove that could be under cooked (spoon caramels, haha) or overcooked (tooth breaking hard). These are the first things my guest go for on my Christmas cookie and candy tray.
