Caramel-Chocolate Crunch Bars

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Bake: 10 min. + cooling


8 servings

“These bars are lower in calories and are just scrumptious,” says Agnes Ward. “The Grape-Nuts and oatmeal gives them a nice nutty crunch.” With caramel and chocolate on top, you'd never guess these are light.


  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 5 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup Grape-Nuts
  • 1/4 cup caramel ice cream topping
  • 1/4 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Line a 9x5-in. loaf pan with heavy-duty foil. Coat foil with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, cream butter and brown sugar. Add the oats, flour and cereal; mix well. Pat into prepared pan.
  3. Drizzle caramel topping to within 1/2 in. of edges. Bake at 400° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Immediately sprinkle with chocolate chips. Bake 1 minute longer. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars.
