This recipe produces wonderfully soft and chewy caramels. Because of their texture, the caramels squares will gradually spread and lose their square shape if not wrapped soon after they are cut. To wrap the squares, cut out small 3" squares of waxed paper (plastic wrap also works well) and place a caramel square in the middle. Fold one side over the caramels, then fold the opposite side. Twist the ends to secure the wrapping and repeat with remaining caramels.
