YOWZA!! Can you say yummy? I made these in a 10x15 baking pan, and they were about 1/3 inch thick, so not really brittle, but more like a thin bar cookie. I'll confess to adding 1/2 cup chocolate chips instead of 1/4, too, while I'm at it. Couldn't wait until they were compltely cooled -- three kids, DH and I dug in while still warm and ooey-gooey, and promptly devoured half the pan. Perfection with a tall glass of milk. Thanks for another awesome, fantastic recipe, Kitten!

This receipt is so easy and fast. Although I spread it out thinner than 1/2 inch, baked it the full 20 minutes, mine did not come out crispy or brittle-like. However, the taste did not suffer. We waited until it was room temperature and then devoured it. The four of us ate about half of the pan. I had to tell everyone to stop or we'd make ourselves sick. Yummy. Maybe next time I will spread it out even thinner onto 2 pans because I really want to know what this tastes like crispy. Thank you for a delicious recipe. I'm going to purchase more butter to make another batch today.

These were a little sweet for my personal taste but my husband liked them. They are definitely very carmelly. Oh, and I actually forgot to add the chocolate chips! I think I should have baked mine a bit longer because it wasn't crisp at all, more like a big pan cookie, but I was afraid to overcook them it once it turned nice golden brown. It was very easy to make!
