Chocolate Chip Caramel Bars
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Bake: 25 min.
I followed the recipe, except I added chopped pecans on top. It baked perfectly, and was delicious. It is a keeper.
These have a great taste but I had problems with the bottom crust. It never seemed to set even after baking for 15 minutes. I figured it would firm up after the total baking time, so I continued with the recipe. It never did. Even after completely cooling, the bottom was so moist that it seemed undercooked. A friend who is a chef liked them and said it was just the caramel sinking into the crust, but I thought it was too "wet". If I make these again, I might try making 1 1/2 times the dough.
These are sooo good. Everyone from all ages that has tried these loves them. I have made them twice. The second time I doubled the recipe.
The recipe calls for 16 caramels, they're listed in the ingredients.
does this recipe use caramels? If so, how much?
Dangerously delicious! The only thing I will do next time is melt the caramels in a heat proof measuring cup, it should be easier to pour the caramel sauce where you want it. I made a bit of a mess the first time.
I would make this recipe again but in the directions it says to melt the caramels with milk and that stuff but in the ingredients it doesn't have caramels.
