I loved the crushed chocolate candy and the m&m's because it not only tastes yummy but it makes it fun for my kids. The only thing I am going to change is not using caramels. Unless you eat all of them right after they come out of the oven the caramels become hard and difficult to chew.
Excellent cookies. The cookies were messy getting them out of the baking sheet. The recipe does not call for cooling the cookies in the baking sheet before taking them out. However, leaving them in the pan for 5 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack helps get the cookies out inone piece. I also found the size of the cookie very large. I used about half of the dough called for each cookie and cooked them for the same amount of time. The cookie is moist, chewy and delicious.
