CARAMEL CHOCOLATE CHIP BUTTER BARS

"What did I just do?" Yep, that was the question I asked myself and Mr. Nine after these bars were in our mouths!! SOOOO DELICIOUS!!! Ya know, the kind of delicious where you cannot only eat just one!! Thank goodness I cut them in to small bars, but actually they were like bite sized so maybe I and too many "bites!" Eek...amp up the FitBit!! 
Yum

These made so many, I said "Oh, I'm going to freeze some!" Well, let's just say I never got around to freezing any because we ate them all!! You need these in your life especially if you are a caramel, chocolate and buttery cookie lover!!! Just looking back at these delights makes me want another batch. You know I do have another bag of caramel bits..it's ON!!!




A tasty little easter treat maybe???

What you'll need

CARAMEL CHOCOLATE CHIP BUTTER BARS
Ingredients
1 1/2 cups unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon salt + course sea salt for sprinkling in caramel
4 cups + 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, divided
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup Nestle’s Delightfulls..the Carmel and Milk Chocolate Chip
1 bag Kraft caramel bits
3 Tablespoons milk
   Directions
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9×13” pan with foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
Cream butter and sugar with a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or you may use a hand mixer). Once the mixture is creamed and fluffy, mix in the eggs and vanilla extract until smooth, then mix in the baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt. Slowly mix in 4 cups flour until the mixture is just combined, then stir in the chocolate chips and Delightfulls chips.
Press about 2/3 of this mixture in the bottom and about 1/2” up the sides of the prepared pan.
In a medium saucepan, over low heat, stir the caramel bits and milk until smooth, remove from heat and sprinkle in some sea salt, then add in the 1/4 cup flour. Pour over the top of the dough. Drop spoonfuls of the remaining dough evenly over the top of the caramel.
Bake for 25-35 minutes, or until the top looks done and is golden around the edges. It will still be someone jiggly in the center. Cool completely before cutting. It’s easier to cut when it’s chilled.


Fresh from the oven!
Butter, Caramel and Chocolate goodness it's BEST..BEST I tell ya!!!
HAPPY TASTY TUESDAY!!! 

Now head on over to The Blended Blog to link up your yumminess.

  4. Holy moly, those look good! You know, I do have some caramel bits in the pantry too. This could totally happen sooner rather than later. And too funny about the fitbit. Luckily I get a lot of steps at work, my fitbit friends always tease me that if I keep getting all those steps I'll blow away. I tell them not to worry, I like to eat too much. I'm in a state of equilibrium.... though I should take a month off the eating and let the steps work some magic one of these days!! (maybe next month ;-)!!)
