I love these squares - I have to limit myself to one per sitting because they are so good, it's hard to stop! I made this twice. The first time, I did not have a candy thermometer on hand and undercooked the caramel. It was still very yummy, but the caramel oozed when trying to cut into the squares. The second time, I had a candy thermometer and cooked the caramel to the firm ball stage, but the mistake I made was using a little dark corn syrup - I was running low on light corn syrup. This altered the overall flavor. They were still good, but the taste was not as light. Lastly, to help with the smoothness of the chocolate on top, I added 1 tbsp + 1 tsp of shortening to the chocolate chips as I melted them. The shortening also gave the tops a nice sheen, and prevents the chocolate from cracking when cutting into it.
