wrapping caramels

Recommended Posts

My parents have always made the caramels (traditional and chocolate) for the holidays. They'd dip some in chocolate and then wraps some. This year they both have trouble with their hands, so I'm taking on the caramels. They'd always cut waxed paper squares to wrap, but I have little patience for cutting the papers. Do you think I could use the squares like this? They seem a little large, but I always would cut the papers too small when I tried in the past.

What does everyone use for wrapping their caramels?

There is a special 'stretchy' waxed paper you can buy for wrapping caramels.  I bought some years ago and it worked beautifully.

Your needs may be different then mine, but personally I use cellophane wraps, they just have been consistent and I have never had any problems unwrapping candy after storage. I have had those problems with wax papers, at least early on. I remember I had taffies that would only unwrap cleanly for about 1 week, then after that they would stick and tear the paper, a massive pain and waste. After trying different wraps, cello is just what I stuck with. As for the paper you linked, its difficult to tell without feeling it or just giving it a trial run, you may be on to something, but from experience, if its labeled as being for separators for burger patties, I'd use them for that purpose.

I also use cellophane.

 

I don't think patty paper is heavy enough or waxy enough.  Use something meant for candy.
