    YUMMY! I have made this 5 times now and this was very good, a great find.... I prefer pecans to walnuts as i find walnuts little to bitter! I like to grind the nuts more to make them finer and not so crunchy! Spreading the batter on to the parchment paper is a bit tricky so be ready- I once added caramel to mine and it was fantastic....although you must be sure not to add all the chocolate! They call for TOO much chocolate i would use half the amount with or without the caramel!!!! I would def consider this a delicacy,as you can not eat to many before you get sugar-outed! you can be creative with this recipe! I will def make this hundreds and hundreds more times...... Thanks for this recipe. The BEST TOFFEE I HAVE EVER HAD!!!!! YUM YUM YUM!  -  12 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These are really good. I followed the recipe and was glad I did. I read the reviews, but I barely had enough chocolate. Glad I followed the recipe.  -  11 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These are rather good altho they're pretty rich. My dad complained that he couldn't eat very many at a time because of all the sugar. Maybe use a little less if you have a low sugar tolerence. Oh, and a mistake i made was putting the chocolate on before the cookie part hardened/ cooled enough... yeah that didn't work all that well. Let it cool a little more XD  -  02 Jun 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
