      A quick and easy dessert to make. I did have a little problem eating the caramel after it cooled since it had hardened. It got a little hard to chew but other than that I'll definitely make these little treats again but probably without the caramel (personal preference).

      These got rave reviews from kids and adults alike. A sweet indulgence that will make you smile or make them for your friends and family and watch the smile it brings to their faces! I used a cookie scoop to scoop out the dough and a 1/2 tablespoon to scoop up the caramel. I really liked that they were in muffin cups which eliminated the need for messy cutting and made it convenient to travel with. I'm saving this recipe in my favorites! EDIT: I just saw this recipe in the Pilsburry Cook-Off cookbook and noticed that the chocolate chips are not supposed to be visible and the caramel should be about the size of a quarter in the middle of the cup with a few chopped pecans on top. I'm not very good at following directions but They still tasted great.
