Sorry this was disappointing. The texture wasn't what I was expecting.

Thanks a lot, I really miss my husband since he DIED AND WENT TO BROWNIE HEAVEN! This was REALLY easy to make--especially since I cheated a little. Instead of melting the caramels, I used a jar of caramel ice cream topping. I also used half sugar and half Splenda, and white whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose. (You have to use just a TAD less flour then, so it doesn't get to dry.) Thank you hauska, this was an easy recipe, and a hit with DH and my visiting father-in-law. It goes well with a scoop of vanilla ice cream too!
