    My3Monkeys's Note:

    I found this recipe on an ad for Parkay. (I always bake with real butter, but I'm sure these would be good with margarine too.) I know from experience these freeze well.

      These are kind of labor intensive because of the melting caramel part, but so good. I walked out of the room after I took these out of the oven and my husband cut them and they became a huge gooey, but delicious mess. No picture because the entire thing ended up swimming in caramel. We decided just to eat it hot topped with vanilla ice cream for dessert tonight. I will make these again and snap a picture then. Thanks for another keeper! Made for Spring 2013 PAC.
