These bars are so darn good. They’re a bit on the messy side, but, that’s OK.

They are worth it. 😋

Ingredients You Need:

  • Flour + Baking soda+Salt
  • Butter
  • Sugars: both brown and white
  • Eggs + Vanilla
  • Chocolate chips
  • Salted caramel sauce
  • Coarse sea salt

A few ingredient notes:

  • Make sure your butter is good and softened. Yes, I’m a broken record, but, it’s important for the texture of your bars.
  • Chocolate chips: I used a dark chocolate variety, but, semi sweet and milk chocolate will also work.

Make Your Bars + A Few Tips

  • First, line your baking pan with foil. Then, spray the foil generously with non stick cooking spray. This will make removing the bars and clean up much easier.
  • Next, make your batter. When done, take 1/2 of the batter and spread it in your baking pan. A rubber/silicone spatula works good for this. Also, give the spatula a light spray with the cooking spray. This helps spread the batter a little easier.
  • Now, take your caramel sauce and spread it on top of that first layer of cookie dough. If needed, microwave your sauce for about 20-30 seconds to thin it out for easier spreading.
  • Spoon the remaining batter on top of the caramel sauce.. Carefully, spread it out evenly, the best you can. If you have a little caramel sauce poking out, that’s OK.
  • Bake!
  • Let the bars cool completely before cutting and if you want, top them off with some coarse sea salt before serving.

Enjoy and try not to eat too many. 😉
