Chocolate Chip Caramel Butter Bars

Chocolate Chip Caramel Butter Bars are a combination of sugar cookies, chocolate chip cookies and gooey caramel. Such a yummy recipe!

A DELICIOUSLY SOFT BAR RECIPE

These homemade bars use a healthy amount of butter and are ridiculously good because of it! They are an interesting combination of sugar cookies, chocolate chip cookies and gooey caramel sauce. Instead of brown sugar (like a traditional chocolate chip cookie), we’re using white sugar which is more like a sugar cookie. These bars come out thick and are super easy to slice. Perfect for serving!

I didn’t get a chance to take step-by-step photos of this recipe because – to be honest – I wasn’t sure if they were gonna turn out good. So I made them. We ate them. We loved them. So I snapped a few photos to share with y’all. There is a video below in the recipe card.

INGREDIENTS NEEDED: (FULL RECIPE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST)

  • salted butter
  • sugar
  • eggs
  • vanilla extract
  • baking soda
  • cream of tartar
  • all-purpose flour
  • chocolate chips
  • caramel sauce

HOW TO MAKE CHOCOLATE CHIP CARAMEL BUTTER BARS:

  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Mix together butter and sugar using an electric mixer until fluffy.
  • Mix in the eggs and the vanilla extract. Then stir in the baking soda and cream of tartar.
  • Slowly mix in 4 cups all-purpose flour (a little at a time) until the mixture is combined (don’t overmix)
  • Finally, stir in the chocolate chips. Batter will be very stiff so this will take a couple of minutes.
  • In a bowl, whisk together caramel sauce and 1/4 cup all-purpose flour until totally combined.
  • Press half of the cookie bar batter into the bottom of the prepared baking dish and halfway up the sides. ]
  • This is easiest if you spray a little nonstick spray onto your hands and then press the batter gently.
  • Pour caramel sauce on top of batter.
  • Drop spoonfuls of the remaining dough evenly over the top of the caramel.
  • Bake for about 25-35 minutes until golden brown. Cool completely before cutting.

    Had to try making these, but with just two of us, we couldn’t possibly finish it all, so I cut the recipe down to about 1/3 the original and used an 8×8 pan to bake it in. I was out of caramel syrup, so I substituted chocolate syrup. Terrific result, especially eaten warm. Would go great with softened ice cream or even a little whipped cream topping.
