    Can you make these without the nuts?

  • Crystal

    I am wondering if I can make this recipe without nuts? My family and I are allergic to tree nuts. Just curious.. thank you! :)

    How do you think these would come out if you put them in the small mini cupcake paper cups? I put fudge in them that works out fine. Do you think these would these be too sticky to come off of the paper cups? Just a thought for a better way.

    Will the recipe turn out if I don’t use nuts – allergies?

  • CAROLINE

    I MADE THE CARAMELS, WAITED OVER NIGHT AND THE TASTE WAS GOOD, BUT THE PRODUCT WAS SOUP???i HAVE TWO DIFFERENT CANDY THERMOMETERS, I HAVE EXPERIENCE WITH CANDY MAKING, WHAT HAPPENED??? IS THE RECIPE CORRECT?

    • http://www.copykat.com Stephanie

      The recipe is correct. I am sorry this happened to you. I am certain you have great candy making experience, and you do well with candies. I am sorry that they did not set up. This recipe does work, but it didn’t, maybe some tiny bit of water got in there and messed up the process. I wish I could give you a better answer. Again, I am very sorry you had a bad experience.

      MAYBE IT WAS TOO WARM WHERE YOU SET THEM.

  • Baker Girl

    I have been making these for years. I line my 9×13 pan with non-stick foil that I can just lift out of the pan and peel off of the caramels. I have also found that a pizza cutter is an easy way to cut them.

    One of the best caramels I have ever ate. It was a big hit with everyone. Only problem was trying to get the slab out of the dish after the caramel was set up.
    I covered the caramels pieces with chocolate and added some nuts on top.
    Just need to know a better way of getting the slab out of the glass dish.
    You may want to try to line that pan with waxed paper so you can just lift out the waxed paper ~stephanie

    you probably didn’t let them cool long enough. I make these every year, with the nut, and they are never stringy. And maybe you didn’t cut the pieces all of they way down.

  • NrseKim

    I made these…..even went to 245degrees because I wanted to ensure I would be able to wrap them individually. They were very difficult to cut and stringy when I tried to pull them apart. I did omit the nuts…..so my question is this: Is it supposed to be a very soft caramel? If so then the texture stands to reason. With the nuts it would stand up a litle better. Thanks…….
