    Fold in the chocolate chips; spread over crust. Top with remaining rectangles of dough. Press out to edges of dish; pinch edges to seal with bottom crust. Drizzle with caramel topping.

    Bake in a preheated 375-degree oven for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 1 hour on wire rack before cutting. Cut into 6 rows by 6 rows to make 18 bars. Cut each bar diagonally into 2 triangles. Store covered in fridge.
