salted-chocolate caramel bars

If the name of these bars doesn’t tell you everything you need to know about them, then the photos should. These Salted-Chocolate Caramel Bars are basically all that is good and gooey in this world in one cookie. With a cocoa shortbread base, a layer of thick, salty chocolate-caramel sauce and toasted pecans on top, they are almost candy. If you’re in danger of eating too many, at least you’ll have no problem finding friends to share them with.

My advice is to keep the bars in the fridge. The caramel layer gets a little schlumpy when they are left to sit for too long. They’re also delicious cold, if you can’t wait for them to come up to room temp.

  1. Perfect dessert/snack 😊

  2. they should say -yummy. Looks great

  3. LOL – schlumpy is a good word. These were delish – seeing yours makes me want them again.

  4. My husband said they were like candy. I stored mine in the fridge too.

  5. I agree that these look scrumptious and I totally agree that they are irresistible. I’ve been making trips to my fridge pretty regularly.

  6. I like the decadence of these bars. What I like ever better is your knife! It’d cut through anything, seriously.

  7. We thought they were like candy too. Love your knife!

  8. Yours look gorgeous! I think next time I make these I’ll cut them cold out of the refrigerator. I don’t care how gooey these were, though – they were sooooo good.

  9. Oh wow, these look so tempting. I can’t wait to try!


  11. My mom will love these. It’s her favourite combo.

  12. These are lovely

  13. Mark ate 3…I asked him if I should give some away and he responded with a negative, so I guess he plans on eating the whole pan of these by himself. It was so much easier when the boys were home and their friends were popping in all the time to eat all the baked goods…and everything else! Yours look so good…I need to figure out chocolate better as yours look so dark and rich and mine were just kind of a muted wanna be chocolate.
