Caramel Bars

I have wanted to make these bars for awhile. The reviews were mixed. Several times, the comments said they weren't very caramel flavor. Well, I added additional caramel. Some comments were the bars were dry. My bars weren't dry. These bars are rich. I liked the bars but my daughter loved them. She ate two of them immediately. I think these bars are soft and gooey like a brownie.
