4 stars because, although they're tasty, I found the instructions lacking/misleading. You really do need to wait til the caramel sets up (or refrigerate it for quicker results) before you go ah...

These are awesome. A few years ago, a friend and I along with her Mom were in a bakery in Ontario. We bought squares that were divine, and I have been looking for a recipe for them ever since. W...
