1 - 11oz. bag Kraft caramels (unwrapped)
1 - 9.5oz. bag Dove Promises (milk chocolate OR dark chocolate)
Cover a cookie sheet with wax paper. Unwrap HALF of the dove chocolates. In a double boiler over low heat add the unwrapped chocolate and 1 TBSP Crisco shortening--cook/stir until melted and smooth. Stab one unwrapped caramel with a toothpick, dip it in the chocolate to coat, letting any extra chocolate drip back into the pot. Place the chocolate covered caramel on the wax paper and lightly twist the toothpick to remove it. Use the toothpick to get a little chocolate on the end, then spread it over the hole in the chocolate covered caramel to cover up the hole. Use your fingers to sprinkle just a bit of sea salt on the top of the chocolate covered caramel. Repeat with all caramels. If you run out of chocolate, unwrap the remaining chocolates and add them to the pot with another 1 TBSP Crisco shortening, then cook/stir over low heat until melted and smooth. Let the chocolate covered caramels sit until the chocolate has firmed up.
