Oh my goodness! This was sooo good. I think the name suits the taste just right - while I was making it I thought it would taste more caramely; however, the coating was really quite sweet... almost a honey flavor. After pouring the coating over the dry ingredients (I threw the cranberries in for baking too, that way they'd stick to everything else) I didn't think the coverage was very good, so I stirred after 10 and 15 minutes and everything got coated very nicely and the taste was just right - not too sweet or buttery... Perfect!
