I baked these for a housewarming party I went to last night. They were a big hit and everybody enjoyed them; however, they weren't as flavorful as I was hoping they would be. I'm not sure what I'd do differently next time - maybe add more caramel sauce to the mix or melt some caramel squares and mix those in? When I added the chopped up caramel squares to the cookies (I only chopped about 5 or 6 oz since it was really hard to do), they didn't really melt or anything. The caramel sauce that was drizzled on top made the cookies really sticky (my sauce was went on kind of thick which was probably the problem). Even though they didn't turn out quite as planned, they were really soft, light, and fluffy! Yum!
These are really tasty and easy to make. I liked the look of the drizzled caramel so I decided to go that route. Maybe it was the caramels I used, but they didn't drizzle well at all. They just cooled and hardened way to fast. Next time I will follow the recipe as posted instead. Or maybe test melting the caramels first. thanks so much for sharing!

I wish I would have followed ColiesKitchen.com's suggestions. I tried to chop the caramels and it took forever. I felt like the caramel pieces should have softened more when you topped the cookie, but mine didn't. The flavor just didn't work for me, it was kind of bland. Maybe the kind of caramel pieces you use for the top makes a difference though. However I do love a soft cookie and these were wonderfully soft.
These are excellent. I couldn't get my caramels to chop fine enough so that they would melt on the cookies, so I ended up melting the caramels by microwaving them for about 40 seconds, then drizzling the caramel on top. (I posted a picture) Also I added about 6oz of chocolate chips. YUUUMMY
