Caramel Heavenlies

It’s the Saturday before Christmas and I’m just now doing some of my cookie baking!  I almost didn’t bake any cookies, just because I know I’ll eat them if they are in the house and I don’t want to put on any more weight!! Can anyone relate with me?  However, Christmas only comes once a year and we always have New Years to make those resolutions to lose weight. That being said, one of my favorite cookies are these Caramel Heavenlies!

This is the recipe and I will also have it on the bottom of this post in a PDF format for you to print off!

Cool completely, but while still warm to the touch, cut into 2” squares (the size of half a graham cracker;

then cut each 2” square in half on a diagonal to form a triangle.

You get to eat any corners that might not have gotten completely covered with the syrup mixture!

You get about 48 pieces (12 graham crackers x 2 =24 cut in half = 48)

A nice presentation is to stack them on a glass cake stand!

These are easy to make and I’ve seen other versions of this recipe using saltine crackers. The graham crackers add a nice flavor!
