Are you ready for a very indulgent and delicious treat known as the Reese’s Pieces Caramel Cookie Bars? Be sure, because once you’ve had one of these you’ll be addicted and there will be no going back.
The caramel in the middle of these really makes them so freaking good.
These are like the perfect cookie bar made even better with caramel and Reese’s Pieces candies.
I know, just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, right?
Please don’t hate me for sharing these.
Do you see all that yummy goodness in there? Gracious, so good with a tasty combination for flavors.
I made these in a 9×13 pan. It made about 15 cookie bars.
Which meant a couple was taste-tested and the rest were sent to Alan’s work.
That is where most sweet treats end up. No sense keeping them in the house when Alan is the only one that will eat them and Em & I don’t want them here taunting us.
