How to Make Candy Bar Cookies

Step-by-Step

  • 1In large bowl, combine all base ingredients except flour; blend well. Stir in flour; mix well. If necessary, refrigerate dough for easier handling.
  • 2Heat oven to 325. On well floured surface, roll half of dough to 12x8 inch rectangle. Using pastry wheel or knife,cut into 2 inch squares. Place 1/2 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 325 for 12 to 16 minutes or until set. Cool on wire racks. Repeat with remaining dough.
  • 3In medium saucepan, combine caramels, 1/4 cup whipping cream and 1/4 cup margarine; cook over low heat, stirring frequently, until caramels are melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat; stir in 1 cup powdered sugar and chopped pecans. (Add additional whipping cream a few drops at a time, if needed for desired spreading consistency.) Spread 1 tsp of warm filling on each cookie square.
  • 4In small saucepan, combine chocolate chips,2 tbsp whipping cream and 1 tbsp margarine; cook over low heat, stirring frequently,until chocolate chips are melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat; stir in 1/4 cup powdered sugar and 1 tsp vanilla. Spread glaze over caramel filling. Top each cookie with pecan half.
