AWESOME!!! I made these a couple hours ago and could not wait to let them fully cool to eat. I loved everything about them. i did seem to run low on caramel mixture so I added about 1/4 cup of caramel ice cream topping to fill in the bare spots. When I swirled the chocolate chips the ice cream topping mixed in nicely. It's too bad my kids are nutaphobics, my hubby and I will have to eat them all!!!
