    Simply Delicious!

    Mariane Heroux from Kingston, ON

    This recipe was great! It was so easy to make and was gone in seconds! I do a lot of baking for my family (espically my dad) and he said it was one of the best things i'd ever made! I will definitely make this again!

    Everyone loved these, easy to make and soooo good. They kind of reminded me of magic cookie bars. I can't wait to make them again to treat the office. If you love caramel as much as I do, you have to try these.

    Not the Best

    Charline Pozzebon from Sault Ste. Marie, ON

    I found them hard to cut (my husband helped). They were dry and did not impress anyone in my family. My mother took them to work and some of her staff liked them.

    GOOBER SQUARES

    susan scelzi from ISLIP TERRACE, NY

    These squares were impossible to cut. I don't know if I did something wrong but I ended up with a tray full of ice cream topping(crumbs). My children loved it but it did not add anything to my Christmas cookies.

    The recipe name itself was an eye catcher and too think caramels and chocolate covered peanuts in the same recipe is marvelous and exciting. Oh how yummy!

    Anything made with carmel is a pleaser with my family. Very tasty with the goobers.

    Something Different

    Lynn Heidorn from Seward, Ne

    The title of the recipe was interesting so I gave it a try. The bars are a little crumbly, but, otherwise taste good. It might be fun to try them with Raisinets to make them a little more chewy. These should go over well at work for breaktime.
