We loved going to See’s Candy while growing up. It was so fun looking at all of the delicious candy through the counter window.
You could always count on them to give you a free chocolate for coming into their store. Polar Bear Paws were a family favorite. It’s not hard to see why.
They are creamy with crunchy peanuts, covered in white chocolate, and a family favorite for sure. I think they are just an everyone favorite, because they are simply delicious.
We saw these on Pinterest from Garnish and Glaze and have been so excited to make them. They taste like the real deal. The recipe is spot on and so easy to make.
could i melt caramels instead of making my own?
For this recipe, we highly recommend making the caramel mixture. It is much softer than the caramels you will purchase at the store.
Also if you do heat the caramels, they will be a little more chewy than they will be soft. For the best results, we recommend making your own.
However, if you don’t have time, or the ingredients on hand, you could use pre-made caramels. The texture will just not be as smooth and creamy. It will be a little more tough and chewy.
what could i use besides peanuts?
For this recipe, we highly recommend trying it with peanuts if you haven’t. It is so tasty and so simple.
However, if you have an allergy problem with peanuts, you could also use any of these ideas:
- macadamia nuts
They are even delicious with a little bit of salt to them. You can get unsalted, however, the sweet and salty combination is absolutely delicious.
Any nut would work with this recipe, but you could also make this recipe without any nuts, and just the creamy caramel filling and the white chocolate.
