When someone does something nice for us, or is just a great person, we want to show them our appreciation.  A co-worker took notes at a meeting you couldn’t attend, your neighbor grabbed your mail while you were out of town, or your friend gave you that harsh sage advice you know you needed – make them these bars.  Caramel Salted Chocolate Chip Bars – store bought or homemade caramel sandwiched between layers of chocolate chip cookie dough.  Give them to the crush you haven’t told your bff about just yet, bring them to the work party, or just make a batch for the family and serve them warm with ice cream.  The best desserts are the simple, yet delicious ones – and that is exactly what you have here. Sometimes we do not have the right words to express how we feel. Edible thank you notes show you really do care, and it’s a memory for the recipient that they won’t soon forget.
