Fantastic! I used chocolate covered caramels with great success. I handled these like refrigerator cookies though. I divided the dough in thirds rolled into "logs" and wrapped in waxed paper. After an HOUR I took out one log at a time and followed directions from there. This keeps the dough firm enough to work with (to avoid the sticky mess one reviewer complained of). Always get raves with this cookie! Read More

This is the third time I made these cookies and I mistakingly used this recipe instead of the better one (the one in the website's book). This was the only time that the entire batch of cookies were ruined by being stuck to the pans - a waste of 50 and three hours (between driving buying the ingredients preparing and cooking). I did everything that the recipe called for and the difference between this recipe and the better one is that this only calls for 30 minutes of cooling time versus a minimum of two hours. Awful recipe. Get the better one. Read More

Gave it five stars but I did make a couple of changes. Definitely add the extra 1/2 c flour!!! And a pinch of salt didn't hurt either. I nixed the sugar/nut mixture and rather than those funky chocolate covered caramels I used old fashioned plain caramels. WOW! They were great! Highly recommend these - but be sure to alter the recipe a bit! Read More

These cookies are WONDERFUL! My boys love them and they are now a Christmas tradition. BUT I will only make them with butter. It's worth it! Read More

These cookies were a big hit! I used caramel Hershey's Kisses and only made 1 dozen at a time so the batter could chill in the fridge between batches. Read More

These are great cookies and great for a cookie party. My aunt and I each made some - I used Milk Duds and she used Rolos and Milk Duds. The Milk Duds didn't melt for eaither of us! So you have this yummy cookie and get to this wad of candy in the middle kind of a bummer but still yummy. The Rolos melted just right! I'll use those next time. Read More

This is a great cookie. It almost taste like a brownie. They only thing that I did different was I didn't add the nuts just because I don't like nuts. I also didn't add the sugar at the top just because. I will tell you that they are very messy to make and you MUST work in tiny stages and to make sure not to let the dough get room temp. I did only use the little caramel pieces and not the chocolate covered ones because they were on sale of course! They were a hit at my work Christmas party!!! Read More

These were really good. I used Rolos did not put nuts in the dough added 1/2t. salt and used melted white chocolate chips to put spirals on the top of the cookies. I may try a melted caramel drizzle on top next time. Read More
