    Everyone enjoyed these bars. The guys practically inhaled them! They are very rich and gooey. I had to go to five stores before I found the milk chocolate and caramel swirled morsels! I wish I could rate these a 4.5. They weren't quite a 5, but still very good! Thanks for another tasty recipe! Made for Spring PAC 2009.

    PAC 2008- Can I just say THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!! Anything this easy should be a sin and becuse it is delicious to boot, well 10 stars from the boys. I am off chocolate for a week due to medical but the boys (45 and older) LOL went nuts. These were gone within hours! DH says make more for the trip please as these will do great in the bribe or card party department. LOL I followed exactly but wow can I say will make over and over.
