This recipe is awesome! I did have to make a few changes, though. I doubled the recipe and used a 9 by 13 inch pan. I used Mrs. Rischardson's Butterscotch Caramel topping instead of caramels,...

Ok...I'd say not enough flour...too much butter and too much sugar...they get oily and crispy, but all together pretty good. I omitted the chocolate.

Tasted greate. But very sticky on the teeth. Watch your caps.
