  4. Pour the mixture into the prepare baking dish. Let stand for 5 minutes before sprinkling with 24k Magic Edible Glitter Dazzle Dust. Let stand at room temperature for 2 to 4 hours, until set completely.
  5. Transfer the caramel to a cutting board by lifting the edges of the parchment paper. Pull the parchment paper away from the sides of the caramel. Using a shark chef's knife, cut into 24 pieces, each about 3- x 1 1/2-inches. Wrap individual pieces in wax paper.
  6. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
