Hilly's DIY Chocolate Caramels

Life is like a box of chocolates: kind of just fine. Don’t get me wrong, a drug store box of chocolates can be very good, but rarely great. So this recipe upcycles the plastic tray from a box of chocolates and lets you upgrade the candies with a chewy, salty caramel (recipe below), your choice of chocolate, and your choice of crunchy filling. That way you can have a box of chocolates that is like life, but… better.
