this recipe was SHIT. it took close to 8 hours to bake 30 friggin cookies. between the dough getting too soft and having to keep putting it back into the fridge to harden, and the caramel was nasty, and the chocolate was such a pain in the ass, it wouldn't harden and made SUCH a mess. ugh!! never again. they didn't even taste like samoas... i'd rather continue hunting down girl scouts for the real thing.
