Tried this and I thought it was very Good and to homebaked making candy is part of baking and cooking

I'd would be the third person who would like to know if sugar-free Werther's would work. I think I would also probably use pecans--my favorite nut.

This was okay, very sickly. Would not make again.

The chewy caramel and the crunchy peanuts.....mmm.

tried this recipe and loved it...didn't have to change a thing

I made this and was really disappointed. I will not make again.

I just made this with the sugar free original werthers. Tastes great but does not harden.

Great. Idea to use purchased candy to speed up process with great results.
