They are a bar cookie
•1 box Betty Crocker® Gluten Free chocolate chip cookie mix
•Butter, vanilla and egg called for on cookie mix box
•1/3 cup light corn syrup
•3 tablespoons butter, softened
•3 tablespoons peanut butter
•1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons water
•1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla
•3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
•1 bag (14 oz) caramels, unwrapped
•2 tablespoons water
•1 1/2 cups dry-roasted peanuts
•1 bag (11.5 oz) milk chocolate chips (2 cups) (I used 6 oz semi sweet)
1.Heat oven to 350°F. Make cookie dough as directed on box, using butter, vanilla and egg. In ungreased 13x9-inch pan, press dough evenly. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool about 30 minutes.
2.In large bowl, beat all filling ingredients except powdered sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until creamy and smooth. Gradually beat in powdered sugar until well blended (filling will be thick). Press filling over cookie base.
3.In medium microwavable bowl, microwave caramels and 2 tablespoons water uncovered on High 2 to 4 minutes, stirring twice, until caramels are melted. Stir in peanuts. Spread evenly over filling. Refrigerate about 15 minutes or until caramel layer is firm.
4.In small microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips uncovered on High 1 to 2 minutes, stirring once, until melted. Spread evenly over caramel layer. Refrigerate about 1 hour or until chocolate is set. For bars, cut into 6 rows by 6 rows. Store covered at room temperature.

Sounds awesome! But if you don't feel like going to all that work, I find that eating Rice Chex and chocolate chips together tastes an awful lot like a Kit Kat.
It wasn't too bad. It goes in stages with time in between. Plus, I have 3 other "adults" in the house to work on them. We are going to make several batches for the annual 5th of July picnic & fireworks. (yes 5th, everyone works at the Frieworks stand on the 4th)

Experience is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.
