They aren't the prettiest cookie. And I cut the caramel candy into pieces so that the caramel would spread Read More

The caramels really need to be cut in half; they run all over the cookie sheet while baking if left whole. The caramel also gets VERY hard after the cookies have cooled...a couple seconds in the microwave seems to help. Read More

it is not sweet enough too dry and too much oats...the only thing nice is it is chewy enough where the caramel is and the texture is better than other cookies...but i will not make that again Read More

I've found that cutting the caramels in half keeps them from running over the cookie onto the pan. You end up with a caramel puddle in the middle - which I like. Read More

These cookies are dry very messy and not at all attractive. The first batch I baked almost ruined my cookie sheet because the caramel ran everywhere. It helped to flatten the cookie or cut the caramels in half but they still didn't taste good. I wish I would have read the other reviews before trying this recipe! Read More

Yes they were moist but I had a hard time getting the carmel to melt before burning the cookie. I wouldn't make this recipe again. Read More
