These are a Christmas staple in my house. I remember standing on a chair and making these with my mother when I was probably 5 or 6. They're easy, yummy, and keep well for an extended period of time. They also freeze well. Prep time is set up time, Cook time is how long it takes to get the mixture in the pan. (I live at high altitude, this will be slightly shorter at lower altitudes)

Great recipe. I can understand why these are a staple at Christmas time. So quick and easy, but yet very yummy. This will go on my Christmas list also. The only thing I did different was to frost with the chocolate and sprinkle Heath Bit o Brickle Bits on top instead of Caramel flavored bits. I just used what I had on hand.
