1/2 bag chocolate chips  
bake at 350 for approx 24 mins.  cool and pour on ganache.  Then chill and add chocolate ganache. Rechill!

CARAMEL KISSES GANACHE :
Heat 1/2 c. heavy cream and pour over 1 bag of Caramel filled kisses, stirring until melted.  Let cool until thickens a bit and pour over cooled cookie bars.  Chill.

Do you bake the chocolate cookie dough first? Then put the second layer? I'm not sure how to assemble but want to make this!

If you are using the premade dough about how much should you use

The 8 ounce package would probably fit the pan but I have only tried it with homemade.
