Caramel Heavenlies

Before I cut these bars into triangles, I usually trim the edges so all the cookies look the same. My husband and daughter love this part because they get to eat the "scraps." —Dawn Burns, Lake St. Louis, Missouri

    If I made this again, I would reduce the butter by half, it was too greasy for me. Taste was ok but not good enough to make again.

    I used 2 cups of chopped pecans and about 2 cups of marshmallows. They are delicious!

    I have made these many times since they appeared in the Taste of Home magazine. They are quick, easy and never fail. I will advise measuring the interior of your pan. I have two pans sold as 15x10. One measures 15x10 on the interior and one measures 15x10 on the exterior which makes it smaller. I like to use my (larger) 15x10 pan and increase the butter and sugar to 1 cup each.

    A very rich dessert. My grandmother has had a recipe for something similar with graham crackers, the butter sauce and sliced almonds baked like this one that my family has always loved. This one is has the added coconut, marshmallows and cinnamon. I will make it again.
