        This recipe won a prize in the Pillsbury Bake-Off in '67. I have the recipe booklet for that year. Boy, does that bring back memories. They're excellent!

          I have a similar recipe that I make that uses Kraft caramels and evaporated milk instead of the caramel ice cream topping.
          Its very good! Chewy and yum!
