SOOO Good!!

Janelle Ritter from SAINT JOHNS, MI

Not only are these easy to make, but they are so good. Every time I take them to a potluck or family gathering there are none left. Great if you love chocolate and caramel. Sometimes messy to eat but still worth it.

    Best Cookies EVER!

    Danielle Arnold from Gilberts, IL

    I love these and so did everyone who tasted them when I made them. I think they actually taste better the 2nd day. When they first come out of the oven (after cooling a bit) they're good but the next day they were great! I like to warm them up for 6-7 seconds in the microwave - YUMMY! I agree that it could use more caramel but it isn't necessary!

    These are so easy to make and I get rave reviews every time. Instead of taking the time to melt the caramels and the cream, I substitute caramel ice cream topping. This recipe is definitely a keeper.

    This is a super recipe. Not only are these delicous but they are easy to make. Next time I make these I might add some chopped pecans.

    These are wonderful...I made some last night for my "ladies meeting" tonight, however, after my hubby got hold of them [well...me too], I'm going to have to stop by the bakery and pick up some cookies to have enough goodies for the meeting. I give it 5*****+!

    Yummy

    Laura Hron from THE COLONY, TX

    These were excellent and will definitely earn a place on my yearly christmas cookie list. Everyone enjoyed them. I might use one-and-a-half times as much caramel next time to satisfy my caramel craving but I just love caramel.

    So Rich-So Delicious

    Judith Vandagriff from ROYAL PALM BEACH, FL

    With my Holiday baking fully underway, this wonderful recipe is a definite on the list! It has (nearly) everything in it and is so chewy, yummy, and sure to please everyone (& they will want more than one). I will need to make "a few" batchs to give in cookie exchanges as well. Absolutely, wonderful taste, a keeper for sure.

    A welcome comfort food! Whether tired from holiday shopping or other, having some of these tasty, chewy, totally yummy bars is a life saver. They make a good presentation, to give as a gift as well. Easy to make, certainly worth the time.

    Very Good

    Phyllis Cole from PRAIRIE DU ROCHER, IL

    These are very good. I learned milk chocolate morsels melt easier than semi-sweet ones. I left the package in my car while finishing my shopping and had a package of liquid chocolate when I arrived home. No matter, I froze it then broke it into pieces.
