    Great For Potluck

    My office has a monthly birthday potluck and one month I wasn't in the mood for doing much. I found this recipe and it was so easy and so good. I gave the recipe to a friend to use at her daughter's party at school and they didn't last long there either.

    Sold Out at Bake Sale!

    Cheryle Brown from WAYCROSS, GA

    I made these bars to donate to our college's PBL student organization. They held a bake sale to raise money to go to competition. I was told that the bars were SOLD OUT by 10:00 am - and the sale didn't start until after 8. Everybody was asking for "those ooey, gooey, yummy bar things."

  •  Star(s)



    These were so yummy my Mom had them for Christmas dinner. We all had our prime rib and she came to the table with 2 of these and used her knife and fork to eat them. She's so funny but these were great!!

    Dangerous Delight

    liz rios from LANCASTER, TX

    These are just too easy to not make often, which makes them dangerous! They are chewy and sweet, maybe a little too sweet unless you have some milk or serve them warm with vanilla ice cream! YUM! Try these, you will not be disappointed!

  •  Star(s)


    Sandra Clements from JACKSON, MO

    This was a fast and easy treat. I do usually use homemade chocolate chip cookie dough, even though it takes a bit longer - just like the taste of it better. You can also use sugar cookie dough. The different nuts are delicious too. My kids love these, they don't last long.

    Absolutely Fabulous


    The recipe was so easy to make. Wish I had made more because, before I knew it they were gone. My family helped make the next batch. It was funny having less experienced bakers but the second batch was just as fabulous as the first baatch.

    Quick, Easy & Excellent


    These are great treats! So incredibly quick and easy using packaged cookie dough and ice cream topping. I did leave out the nuts, since not everyone cares for them in recipes. This is definitely a keeper! Thank you.

    Wow! Only 3 ingredients make this delicious treat! Caramel anything is my favorite. This goes at the top of my list!

    These bars are great shortly after they are out of the oven served with Ice Cream on the side!! I did not use the nuts but I'm sure with the nuts is just as delicious! You'll prob. find your family asking you to bring this dish to gatherings.

    Chocolate Chip Carmel Nut Bars

    Lee Albert from LATROBE, PA

    My husband and I are retired, this recipe is great for us, makes enough for two people and to share with neighbors who drop in for coffee. My friend wanted the recipe. But the day I made them my grandson was here, he said it all when he said, grandma, these cookies are "to die for," I guess that is an expression the young ones use today to say that, "these cookies are sooo good.

  •  Star(s)


    Eric ilasenko from Palm Coast, FL

    Easy to make and so good, but be warned -they are addictive! Our first batch was gone is seconds flat, so make plenty. Great served warm with milk, pure heaven...
