There are a variety of ways that you can package and present the sweet treats, so it's easy to customize the favors according to event theme or color.

Following are some caramel party favor ideas to get your started:
1. Individual Treat Bags
The simplest way to present gourmet caramel favors is in small, individual bags that you can personalize according to the event or guest. For instance, if your wedding reception colors are yellow and grey, package the treats in a grey bag tied with a yellow ribbon. You can also have the bride and groom names, along with the event date, printed on the bags.
Other ideas include red and green bags for a Christmas party, and blue or pink bags for a baby shower. If you prefer to use plain-colored bags, you can have the caramels wrapped in colorful cellophane instead.
2. Caramel Apples
Either homemade or store-bought caramel apples made with gourmet candy make tasty party favors, especially during the fall. Decorate the caramel-dipped apples on a stick with festive sprinkles, such as black, orange and purple for a Halloween bash, or rainbow-hued sugar for a child's birthday party.
Wrap the apples in clear cellophane and secure them with coordinating ribbons to complete the gift.
3. Caramel Popcorn
Rich and decadent caramel popcorn is another crowd-pleasing party favor idea. Whether you make the caramel-coated popcorn yourself or buy it from a gourmet candy retailer, you can package it yourself.
As one idea, fill clear baggies with individual serving of popcorn, and then set them in popcorn boxes similar to the ones served at movie theaters. You can write messages, such as "Thank You" or "Happy Halloween" on the boxes using metallic pens a a personalized touch.
