MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 25, 2010

"I must have used the old caramels because mine didn't turn out that great. Next time I plan on microwaving the caramels first and then adding them to the cookie."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 11, 2009

"I made these cookies last Christmas and they were YUMMY! I didn't think they took any extra time and they were definately impressive. Just make sure you use "fresh" caramels and not ones sitting in your cupboard for how long?"
