Hey guys, this is Lauren again from Tastes Better From Scratch and I’m super excited to share these amazing Chewy Chocolate Caramel Bars with you!

My mom recently gave me my Grandma’s recipe box. It’s this super old-fashioned metal box that weighs like 50 pounds, but it’s full of GOLD! Ok, not real gold, but recipe gold! I’ve spent hours sorting through some really old, really fun recipes. I’m not going to lie, I can’t read some of them. My Grandma’s friends wrote in old fashioned cursive, and sometimes the writing is so slanted I have no idea what the recipe says.

Chewy Chocolate Caramel Bars are soft and chewy and the oats in them give them the perfect texture.

Amongst the recipes that I have been able to read are some total classics, and some amazing family recipes that were passed down from my great-great grandparents. I’ve shared a few favorites already on my blog, including my Grandma’s Lemon Chiffon Pie, Oatmeal Cake, and Baked Apples. I found this recipe for Chewy Chocolate Caramel Bars and I think it was from her neighbor. I’ve seen similar recipes before and I knew immediately I wanted to bake them.

These bars can be summed up in three words: Chocolate Caramel Bliss. They are soft and chewy and the oats in them give them the perfect texture. They’re absolutely delicious! A “keeper” recipe for sure!

Chewy Chocolate Caramel Bars

Serves — 20
Chewy Chocolate Caramel Bars are soft and chewy and the oats in them give them the perfect texture.
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 35 mins
Total Time 45 mins

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup melted butter
  • cups flour
  • cups old-fashioned oats
  • cups brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 14 ounce bag of caramels unwrapped
  • ½ cup evaporated milk
  • 1 12 ounce package chocolate chips

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Combine the first six ingredients and reserve half of the mixture, pressing the other half into the bottom of a 9×13” pan.
  • Bake crust for about 15 minutes, until lightly browned.
  • Combine the caramels and evaporated milk in a microwave safe bowl (or on the stove over low heat). Microwave at low power, stirring every 30 seconds, until the caramel is melted.
  • When the crust comes out of the oven sprinkle chocolate chips all over the top. Drizzle melted caramel over the chocolate chips.
  • Top with remaining crumb mixture.
  • Return to oven and bake for another 12-17 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned.
  • Allow to cool completely before serving, to allow them to set up. I like to chill them in the refrigerator for at least two hours before serving.
