Press ~1/2 the cookie dough into your prepared baking sheet.
Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, then remove from the oven.
Stir the caramel. If it has thickened too much so that it won't pour smoothly, heat it up in the microwave for ~15 seconds or place back on the stove over low-medium heat until it thins out.
Pour the caramel over the partially cooked dough and spread it around evenly.
Take small pieces of the remaining dough and flatten them with your hands, then place them evenly over the caramel. Continue until all of the dough is used up.
Place back into the preheated oven for another 20-25 minutes, until golden-brown.
Let the bars cool completely and then slice into 16 bars.
