This recipe is so good and easy. I keep on misplacing my recipe card so I thought I should post while I know where it is. I think everyone who likes caramel will love them.

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!
