Loved the bars! Easy to make. I used half of the caramel called for and just drizzled it over the chocolate instead of trying to spread it. Then sprinkled the nuts over the top before the chocolate and caramel cooled.
I made these as a practice run for a pot-luck. My family loves them. I found that if you put the cookies in the refrigerator before cutting them the camel hardens and you can cut them much easier. I wouldn’t stack them since the caramel will get sticky when it warms back up.
Didn't come out like the picture, chips didn't melt right but quite tasty!
For this recipe to avoid being too gooey it's best to be sure and press the crust in the pan very firmly and let the chocolate cool slighly before spreading the carmel/nut mixture. Placing in the refrigerator for about 1 hour and using a very sharp knife makes cutting clean triangles(or squares) easier. The carmel will stay soft but not runny. I also stored the cookies in the refrigerator and they did fine.
Tastes great (how could it not- with chocolate and caramel!), but very difficult to cut and separate. The cookie base crumbled to pieces and the caramel was hard to spread and kept swirling with the chocolate. The top two layers separated from the cookie. Messy, but tasty! Don't make it for presentation.
These bars tasted allright, but were extremely gooey. I made the recipe twice, just to make sure I wasn't missing something. I found that the bars were difficult to separate, as the carmel topping continually melded together. I was intending on taking these to a cookie exchange, but they did not appear very appetizing, just a gooey mess.
This is the most divine treat I have had in a long time. It has all of my favorite elements; chocolate, chewiness, nuts, and cookies. How could I go wrong. This will be added to our list of favorite holiday traditions.
This is a great recipe to take to church or school social events, and it's very easy and fast to make.
OMG, are these good!!! Instead of using walnuts I used peanuts, mmmmmm. These bars will for sure be made again and again!!
