Now, those of you that are familiar with the process of turning condensed milk into caramel might be trying to think of new ways to use up these little babies? Well, let me introduce you to these.

I added a few toasted pecans, and finally, drizzled them with more caramel. Whew! All of this for a little dessert you ask? Yes. And, oh my, so worth it!

And my mouth is watering just typing about them. Good thing I had my hubby take them all to work. After I had one, of course!
