Not very good. The caramel part was good, but the frosting was a disaster. The sugar never dissolved and the frosting just tased like a blob of greasy fat with granulated sugar in it. I tried to salvage mine by adding some powdered sugar. Will not make this with the original frosting again. Not sure what else I would pair with the caramel. Very disappointed.

These cookies are wonderful! I made them for two different weddings and they were the first cookies to go! They may take a little bit of time to make, but they are definitely worth it!

I think this is the recipe I've been looking for! It was a school dessert that I loved. I hope it's the one has anyone taken any photos so it can be confirmed, and does the toffee/caramel stay soft and gooie? Thanks
