I love all things caramel and chocolate!  These little bars are seriously a bite of heaven!  I had to practice self-control to not devour the whole pan myself :)  As you can tell, mine are a little gooey in the picture because I could hardly wait to cut into them!

    Would love to see this recipe include an option for making the caramel, rather than buying and unwrapping the gross little cubes.

    Could you tell me approx. how much 64 squares of caramel melted equals? I was thinking about using a homemade caramel but wasn't sure how much to use? thanks!

    Could you use Eagle brand milk caramel instead of caramels and cream??

    This overflowed an 8x8 pan. Other recipes online for the same amount of ingredients shows 9x13.
