definitely delicious, my sons gobbled them up.
I just made this recipe. It came on the butter container. Anyhow, it is delicious and easy. I did double the caramel because it didn't seem to cover the whole thing. I put it in the refrigerator for an hour and it was easy to cut. I highly recommend it!
We first saw this recipe on a Land O' Lakes butter package over 20 years ago. My Mother and I have made these every year for the holidays since. Thank you Land O' Lakes for keeping this recipe and sharing it with everyone.
everyone loves it! perfect as the recipe states. Rich and yummy!
The crust on this ended up being harder than I thought it would. I reduced the butter a little bit and it came out softer,crumblier, but softer. I also added vanilla, a pinch of salt and 2 Tbs of milk to the caramel mixture. I added about 30 more seconds to the time because of the milk. Watch it close so it doesn't get grainy. I don't add any chips when baking. They don't melt. So I use some easy chocolate candy coating chocolate you can microwave and drizzle over the top. Ok, so I pretty much re-wrote the recipie but it is a good base and tasty.
Caramel is creamy, sweet and salty. It makes ordinary desserts luscious and sophisticated.
