This is one of my husband's favorites! If you have a favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, you can use it to create these bars.

Quick note: I tried to just melt the caramels and drizzle them instead of chopping them into quarters. Do NOT do this. The caramel turned out kinda hard and I definitely did not like how it turned out as well as when I did it the other way. Maybe if I had drizzled it AFTER baking it would have been better.
