Reviews for Caramel-Cashew Dark Chocolate Chippers
"These are the best cookies ever! very easy to mix up and perfect flavor and texture. I didn't have dulce de leche so I used a jar of good quality caramel ice cream topping. I will definitely make these again and again! ~- Marmalady"
"So good I made a second batch. First batch used pecans and made it like a traditional choc chip cooky; second batch followed recipe with cashews mixed with sugars. YUMMY! Will use recipe again."
