    Oh my goodness, these are so good they should be illegal! They are so decadent, rich and sweet. Just perfection when you are craving something sweet! I had to give away half the batch as I just knew I'd end up eating them all!

    Years ago, a friend gave me a sampling of these bars, and they were so yummy, I had to have the recipe! I've made these countless times, and they're always a big hit! The most time-consuming step is unwrapping the caramels, but the rest is a breeze! The ooey-gooey caramel/chocolate center complements the crust & topping delightfully! Delicious!! :)

    YUMMMY! These are incredible and easier to make than I thought. I don't know, I thought there were too many steps I guess... not at all. I used crushed macadamia nuts, and they went together quickly... and I sampled one already. Thank you for the decadent treat! :)

    Very tasty. I used Microwave caramels Recipe#367414 that I messed up and cooked too long, so I remelted them and used in this. Also cooked the cookies too long - my stove timer only works when it wants to.
