They start with sweet, creamy butter. Next comes fresh milk and sugar. Then, after adding a few more fresh ingredients — salts, spirits and seasonings — McCrea’s Candies handrolls its exquisite caramel into smooth pieces of perfection.
You can buy some in a number of Garden State gourmet shops, including Occasionette in Collingswood, Fountain Greetings in Nutley, Welcome Home in Red Bank and Thomas Sweet Chocolate in Princeton.
