Feb 7, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Let me be the first to admit that I am not a fish eater, I tolerate tuna but only if it is disguised well. That said both my husband and I liked this recipe. I used standard light tuna in water, drained because that is what I have in the house. The crunch from the veggies was wonderful. I used fat free miracle whip(don't like regular mayo). N"

My family just loves these caramels.

I cooled mine on the counter and then transfered to the fridge. When I wanted to cut them...
