      These are really great. They were not too difficult to make and have a good balance of chocolate, caramel, and cookie. The only change I made was to just sprinkle chips on top of the warm caramel instead of going through the chocolate chip drizzle step. This saved time and the end result tastes just as good. The only thing I didn't like about this bar was that my caramel topping got pretty runny at room temperature, making them messy to eat. I used low fat milk in the topping, which may be the cause. Next time, I'd use whole or evaporated, or reduce the amount of low fat milk somewhat to prevent this.
