    senseicheryl's Note:

    I found this recipe in the Pillsbury Fall Baking booklet that I picked up at the grocery store in the checkout aisle. "As with many brownie recipes, doneness is difficult to describe. The topping will feel soft when gently tapped, but the edges will be set and the top will look dry. Try making these bars with hot fudge topping instead of the hot caramel topping next time."
