I recently purchased my first 5lb block of Peter’s Caramel. For Easter dinner this weekend I decided to make a Turtle cheesecake. So today I pulled out my new box of Peter’s caramel. I was amazed at how easy it was to work with this product. It comes sealed inside a plastic bag and in a box. The caramel is fresh, has beautiful stretch, is soft and pliable, and has a fantastic homemade caramel flavor. It was quick and easy to mold into turtle sized caramel pieces. (Sad to cut up my beautiful handmade Turtle candy into tiny pieces to sprinkle on the top of the cheesecake.) I must also add that I like the flavor of this Peter’s Caramel better than the Mercken’s caramel I have bought in the past. This caramel melts easily and will work well with caramel apples in the fall. Also will make candy making at the holidays shorter since I won’t be making caramel from scratch any more. This caramel easily matches anything I can make homemade in my kitchen.
I simply resealed the original packaging with my Foodsaver sealer for storage. According to the manufacturer this product will last approx 1 year but it will never get the chance to get that old in my pantry. This is definitely a new staple for my pantry.
I have been using the caramel sold by King Arthur Flour – Mercken’s? I think.
This is far better tasting – it will be my go-to product for all baking and dipping from now on!
This caramel melts well and hardens perfectly for caramel apples. I add just a tiny bit of water (maybe a tsp) while it’s melting just to smooth it out a bit.

I ordered this caramel, and in the beginning I made a huge mistake and gave it a 3 rating because even though I thought I was doing everything right-I wasn’t. I have learned so much from practicing with my caramel apple maker. It deserves a 5 rating now that I’ve learned what to do.
For you novices: Use Fit fruit cleaner to get the wax off of the apples, then make a mixer of half lemon juice half water and wipe the apples off with it-allow to dry before dipping in caramel. This will help caramel to adhere. Also, do not dip the apples when the caramel is really hot. I believe the ‘magic’ number was to dip them when the caramel was approx 86 degrees. Place in fridge for 15 minutes after dipping and then take them out. I do not like my caramel apples cold…but if you do, they can be left in the fridge.
This caramel is by far the best one sold on Amazon or any other site. It tastes just like Rocky Mountain Choc Factory Caramel, and theirs is homemade!
I give it a total 5 stars now!!
This is a great product and I wouldn’t use any other brand for my candy business. Very easy to work with from making caramel covered pretzels to melting and making pecan clusters. I always buy this product from Amazon as they have great service.

I used this to make carmel apples for my sons Birthday party. The product worked well and I would recommend this.

Forget the brand that you find in your big chain supermarket, this caramel is out of this world!? It makes the best taffy apples.
