This recipe was a hit in my family!
The chocolate base was like a brookie, and I loved the whipped topping.
My caramel was a bit runny, so I drizzled some on top instead!! They were so cute 😊
This cookie is heavenly the chocolate base is rich moist and delicious.Then top with a layer of caramel and homemade whip cream..it all fits perfectly and like always the recipe is easy to follow and spot on. MY new favorite 😍
So good! I loved the whipped cream frosting. I used store bought caramel which ended up being too runny but after thickening it, it worked perfect. instead of doing 8 large cookies Im able to make about 14 smaller ones. The Heath crumbles add the perfect amount of crunch!
So glad to hear that, Olivia! Thank you for sharing that information about the store-bought caramel as well!
