Ratings & Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I thought these were awful. I thought these were awful. Actually threw them away after tasting them. I'm known to be a good cook and had made these to take to a luncheon. I quickly made something else as these certainly weren't what I'd want to be known for bringing. The caramel did get messy, and I could have handled that if they had had a good flavor. Just sickening sweet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Wow! So good! As soon as these got a chance to cool, I put them in the refrigerator to cool and kept them in overnight. It helped the carmel set and be less gooey while eating. Gave them out in goodie-bags for treats at school and peopled loved them!

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It was very good. It was very good. I made it for a party and it was a real hit. Like the other reviewers, I had a little problem with the caramel getting gooey if kept at room temperature, but it was still tasty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is very tasty. This is very tasty. I would suggest using less carmels, as they made the top very sticky and kind of made it flimsy and difficult to get out of the pan. But nonetheless VERY YUMMY!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous...they are so easy and cutting them into triangles makes them seem more elegant. Fabulous...they are so easy and cutting them into triangles makes them seem more elegant. Everyone who ate them wanted the recipe, that's when you know it is a keeper.
