"Anytime I can find a mixture of salt and chocolate, I jump on it. These cookies/candies are rich but wonderful. If you are not a big fan of chocolate, or want these a little less sweet, leave the chocolate off."

These were good, but not sure they're a do-over. Don't put them in the refrigerator, you'll lose a filling.

These were really good, however I would advise anyone with fragile dental work to be warned. I thought they were going to pull my fillings out they were so chewy.

Very good and very easy! Very popular at my grandson's grad party. I use parchment paper sprayed with Pam on the pan. Easy removal and easy cleanup. We love the sweet salty contrast. I agree ...
