This was delicious when it was warm! It was gooey, soft, and smelled amazing! However, once it cooled down, it was tough to cut and chew. I recommend serving right away!

After reading the reviews I couldn't wait to try these. They came out awesome! Sure they are sweet. Most recipes with chocolate and caramel are... DUH! If you don't like sweet, then don't eat sweets. They are called that for a reason! Make em and see for yourself how yummy they are!

Took these to a friend's house for a cookout. The majority like them, though the common thought is that it was a little too sweet . Made for ZWT6 Voracious Vagabonds
