Not only was this very easy,also many compliments.However I found the amount of bottom crust called for was not enough.I probably used about a half cup more.I then added appx. 1/4 cup cocoa powder to stretch topping mix.I used sliced almonds for nuts.My co-workers loved them.Thanks!

Very good .. the streusel browned perfectly and was very tasty and crunchy, and the caramel filling inside was soft and creamy.. very good combination.

VERY good! I found it much easier to melt the caramels, condensed milk and butter in the microwave - stopping to stir occasionally. I used them as Christmas gifts for the neighbors and have been asked for the recipe. Will definately make again!
