"So, I was all excited at these beautiful cookies with sweet and salty side to them. The cookies were really easy to make, came together in no time. I never got mine to brown at all on top and quit after about 20 minutes in the oven for fear of over-baking them like the recipe says. The caramel melted easily, but was a nightmare to get on the cookie. It looks so pretty in the picture, mine look terrible and messy. The caramel cooled almost instantly despite the fact I was using a hot spoon to spread it. Perhaps I shouldn't have let the cookies cool completely? The chocolate was also a nightmare. 30 seconds in the microwave was enough to burn my chocolate, so I had to start over. When I tried drizzling it, it didn't come out smoothly and instead looks choppy. Every thing cooled so quickly that the salt had nothing to stick to and falls off when you turn the cookie upside down. I'm so disappointed. I really wanted pretty cookies, but they came out ugly. Still taste good. Next time, I'll turn the heat up in my house. Some pointers on how to work with caramel and chocolate would be much appreciated also."
