  1. There's a recipe on epi for caramel chocolate chunk cookies that's pretty good. I've made them for Christmas a couple of years.

    1. Melt them and pour over really good vanilla ice cream. YUM.

      1. Oatmeal carmelitas are good.

        1. Melt them and use them to fill choux puffs (especially the fleur de sel ones!) with a sprinkling of powdered sugar on them.

          Make decadent brownies! Put chocolate chips in the batter. Fill the pan with half the batter and bake just until set. Pour melted caramel over the brownies and put in the fridge until caramel is solid again (about an hour). Top with remaining batter and bake til done.
