"Winner! We actually call them "almost better than sex" bars, because they are almost that good!"

MY REVIEW

"Made these for my daughter's high school softaball team. Loved them. So easy to make. Used the Kraft caramel bits instead of unwrapping a bag of caramels. Will make again!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 28, 2011

"I have made these decadent caramel brownies many, many times over the past 20 years. They continue to receive rave reviews wherever I take them. Unwrapping the caramels takes a lot of time but it is worth the effort. Highly recommended!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 4, 2009

"My parents alwaysmade these at Christmas time, and this was one of the first recipes that I ever made when I was 9. It was always my job to take the wrappers off of the caramel, now my daughter does that for me."
