    megnbrycesmom's Note:

    These are to die for! Now that I've got nut allergies to deal with in my household, I make these without the nuts and with extra crumb mixture (1 1/2 times the crumb mix), but the nuts are really good to cut the sweetness. The recipe is originally from a land-o-lakes pamphlet. Part of prep time is cool time.

      These were amazing! But, of course, I did make a few changes. I used an 8x11 pan so they would be thicker. And I added 1/2c of white chocolate chips to the melted layer of chocolate chips. I also didn't add the top layer of chocolate they were already rich enough with 1 1/2c of chips. I completely omitted the nuts because I hate them. Will make again...Thank you for a wonderful recipe!

      These are delicious!I had caramels left over from Halloween so this is where they went.I only made one layer of the nuts/chocolate combo,just doubled them up.Then I had the reserved crumb mixture for the top.I added a tsp of vanilla to the caramel/milk mixture.I may use a 7 x 11 pan next time for a higher bar as opposed to a flat one that this recipe makes.

      YUMMY! Do cut these into small portions as they are rich. I think I'll refrigerate these before I cut them next time so they are firmer. I'll be making these again. Made for the *Recipe Swap 14* game 2008 in the Aussie/NZ forum. Our group was *The Kumara Kids* Group 28
